CAFOD

The work of CAFOD continues to be an important part of our parish community. Supported by the deanery, regional and national organisation we have been kept informed and responded to the appeals for overseas aid, action and justice for a fairer world. We responded to the Haiti earthquake appeal with a collection of £800. The Lenten “Give it up” campaign resulted in raising £511 for the Lenten family fast day, £336 from a Lenten lunch in February as well as money raised in the CAFOD boxes. Our Summer campaign will be to get as many people as possible to sign up to ask the government to act on poverty.CAFOD will push for a fair climate change deal at the UN, for the government to honour the commitment on spending on aid and to ensure businesses are accountable to people in poor countries.
