Jo Lewry would like to say thank you to all the parish volunteers who held fundraising events in their parishes in 2022 and asks could you have a go at fundraising in 2023?
From cake sales to plant sales to soup lunches our amazing parish volunteers not only promote our fast days but also organise fundraising events. In fact, you don’t even have to be a parish volunteer to fundraise for CAFOD! We have lots of fun and unusual ideas for fundraising here on our website. If you prefer to take on a sponsored challenge don’t forget our BIG Lent walk walking 5ks for the 40 days of Lent starts on Ash Wednesday, 22nd February and you can sign up here. We also have opportunities to take part marathons and ultra-challenges more information here. So, whatever you are in to whether it is baking cakes, making soup, growing plants, walking, or running 26 miles you can use your skills and talents to raise money for those living in poverty overseas. Together we can make a difference in 2023!
