After spending a week with 34 fellow CAFOD campaigners from Katowice (pronounced Kato-VI-tsay), Poland, I returned to Hallam… Stunned. Why? Because I had been exposed to a reality that is uncomfortable, that affects me directly and which will affect my one-year-old granddaughter, Ada, even more, if I and we don’t take the opportunity we have right now to avert it.
During November CAFOD volunteers and supporters have gathered for Masses of Thanksgiving around the regions in remembrance of our loved ones who have passed away.
Seen here below, Tessa Hope, Veronica Togher and Barbara Lander look through a book of remembrance of the names of their loved ones and share memories over a cup of tea.
Local pupils have raised over £268 to help overseas communities living in extreme poverty. Alex Krzyz volunteers in schools for CAFOD said “the pupils donated £1 each for the privilege of dressing up in colourful clothes to Brighten up the lives of others around the world as part of development charity CAFOD’s Harvest fundraising campaign”.
