St Edmund’s soup lunch
Thank you to Jude Maleski and her team of CAFOD volunteers at St Edmund’s church in Southampton for organising a soup lunch on Tuesday 10th October. They raised an amazing £135 for the CAFOD Harvest fast day appeal. A HUGE thank you to all those from St Joseph & St Edmund’s parish who went along to enjoy the delicious and warming soup. Your donations will help people around the world lift themselves out of poverty just like Edelmira a farmer from El Salvador who was taught a variety of different farming techniques which enabled her to grow more food to feed her family.
