Parishioners signing Power to Be cards
Many thanks to Nadine West and the CAFOD supporters at Holy Trinity Church, Church Crookham for organising the Power to Be service and card signing at the church on Sunday 29th October.
Power to Be cards
Nadine told us that the service was very uplifting and 38 cards were signed. The cards are asking Melanie Robinson who is the UK executive director at the World Bank to encourage the World Bank to spend more on renewable energy as it is the cheapest and most efficient way to bring power to the poorest communities. One in six people across the world still don’t have access to the energy they need to power their schools, homes and health centres. The Power to be campaign is going on until the end of the year so there is plenty of time to organise a card signing in your parish – order the cards here.

Boscombe Bakers keep on baking!
Even though it is the summer holidays the Boscombe Bakers are still baking! Last Sunday 13th August they organise a small cake sale and served coffee and croissants after mass and raised a fantastic £156 for CAFOD.
So many thanks to Annie and the team of bakers. Inspired to fundraise for CAFOD there are lots of ideas here.
Enjoying the sunshine at the Summer BBQ
Many thanks to Alistair Drain and his team of CAFOD volunteers for organising the annual Summer BBQ at St Saviour’s Church Totland Isle of Wight on Sunday 13th August. The sun shone, the BBQ sizzled and the crowds were entertained by The Bay Wailers, and an amazing £575 was raised for the refugee crisis.
A HUGE thank you to all those who helped on the day by setting up the marques, doing the cooking, baking cakes, donating raffle prizes and volunteering. Also thanks to those who supported the event and donated money to help CAFOD refugee crisis appeal which cares for people who have been forced from their homes due to war and violence.
Many thanks to St Saviour’s church for the use of their grounds and to The Bay Wailers for the entertainment.
