Volunteers since 1978. Meet area co-coordinators Kevin and Linda Dignum.

Kevin and Linda are the area coordinators for St Leonards Deanery and have been supporting CAFOD since June 1978!  Here they explain why they support CAFOD through volunteering and what their role entails.

“As life-long Catholics we both have concerns about some aspects of the Church’s

teaching, but one that we feel a real commitment to is Catholic Social Teaching.   CAFOD is the “Jewel in the Crown” of the Catholic Church in England and Wales and seems the ideal way in which to make a small contribution to justice issues.”

In their role as area coordinators they keep in contact with the parish volunteers in the different churches in the deanery through phone calls and emails. They organise two meetings a year for these parish volunteers before Lent and Harvest fast days so that they can ensure that everyone has background knowledge of the fast day focus country and is confident to run the appeal in their parish, and the meetings also gives parish volunteers a chance to share ideas and support each other.

Many thanks to Linda and Kevin for all you have done for CAFOD over years!

If you feel inspired by the tireless work of Kevin and Linda, then why not become a CAFOD volunteer today?
