“A great evening with superb food and good company” was the way that Alastair Anderson a CAFOD volunteer described the Sri Lankan evening that was held on Saturday 23rd April at St Pius X church hall as part of the Catholic Parish of Guildford. As well as selling tickets the organisers held a raffle featuring prizes such as bottles of wine and boxes of chocolates. At the end of the evening the fantastic amount of £1242.50 was raised for CAFOD’s Lenten appeal to raise money for water projects in Africa.
So many thanks to the parishioners who supported this event. Special thanks to Sharmalene Fernando and her team who cooked all the delicious Sri Lankan dishes, to Nick Fox for organising the evening, and to the team of helpers who set up the hall and cleared away at the end of the evening. What an amazing team effort!
