The May Day Trek is coming!

Sign up now for the May Day Trek!

Monday 7th May 2012, set off between 10.00 – 10.40am from Bolsterstone village hall, north Sheffield.

To register and for more info about the 5, 10 or 15 mile routes visit: http://www.sheffieldmaydaytrek.org.uk/ 

This year we have an additional challenge for you all… 2012 marks 50 years since CAFOD was established as the official aid and development agency of the Catholic Church in England and Wales.

To celebrate this, we will give a CAFOD biodegradable water bottle to any walker who manages to get 50 sponsors or more for the May Day Trek – one for each year of CAFOD’s life.

Be creative in thinking of ways to attract sponsors. How about running a sweepstake for your sponsors? Draw one of their names from a hat after your walk and send them a prize as a thank you. Or ask them to ‘sponsor a year’ between 1962 and 2012. Or anything else to do with the number 50!

 And remember – this Lent, the UK Government will match each donation pound for pound, giving us a unique opportunity to help thousands more people living in poverty. So, for every £1 you raise in sponsorship, the government will give CAFOD another £1! Please help us make this most of this great opportunity. Sign up your sponsors before the Trek to double your fundraising.

See you on 7th May!
