Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve had a passion for helping others. I was always the first one there to put money in the charity box or to purchase a wristband and badge at a fundraising stall. My mother has always taught me to be a generous person and says that, sometimes, the smallest actions can create the biggest impact.
On Sunday 22nd May 2016, I visited St. Peter’s Church, Ellesmere, in the hope that my small gesture may indeed amount to something much bigger.
Once I had learnt about CAFOD’s World Gifts and enlightened others through assemblies at school, I felt the urge to spread the message to a wider community. I was amazed at how CAFOD could change so many people’s lives in this way and knew that it was my duty to pass this idea on to others. My initial instinct was to contact my childhood parish and try to organise a five minute slot where I could introduced CAFOD’s work on a deeper level and perhaps encourage others to get involved. Naturally, they had already heard about CAFOD and were more than happy for me to come in and speak to their congregation: I was delighted!
