Record Breaking Plant and Cake Sale in Lyndhurst

Annual Plant Sale in Lyndhurst

Annual Plant Sale in Lyndhurst

Once again (last Saturday 12th May) the fabulous annual plant and cake sale broke its own fundraising record and raised a staggering £3,600 for Connect2 Ethiopia.

Henry Rosenvinge who organised the sale told us “The sun shone, the people came out in support, the village traffic came to a deadlock, there were queues at the gate and at the refreshments, there was much chatter and lots of smiles, the CAFOD banners fluttered in the breeze, and the Sale raised over £3,600 for Connect2 Ethiopia which is another record for us.”

The Team!

A HUGE THANK YOU to Henry and Nuala and all the volunteers who supported the sale by growing plants, making cakes and helping to sell on the day. Many thanks to all those who came along and bought plants and cakes.

In our Connect2 community in Sebeya, in northern Ethiopia, drought threatens hundreds of families who rely on farming for survival. CAFOD is helping vulnerable households with food and seeds, new water points and dams for irrigation.
