A special thank you to the parishioners of Our Lady Star of the Sea for all their fundraising efforts for Lent Fast Day. Frugal lunches were held each week over the Lent period, raising over £900. An amazing effort!
A new fundraising idea was carried out involving the youth of the parish too. They were each given a full tube of smarties and were given the challenge to fill the empty smartie tubes with 20p coins. Some of them even managed to fit £12 worth of 20ps.
A group of local parishioners knitted adorable rabbits with cream eggs raising over £100 for CAFOD.
All these efforts are very much appreciated, and they make such a difference towards helping CAFOD reach and support people in need around the world.
We invite you to look for more fundraising ideas to keep supporting CAFOD. These easy fundraising ideas can be adapted to use at schools, parishes and work with young people, friends, family and colleagues.
CAFOD A&B would like to thank Our Lady Star of the Sea Parish for their amazing fundraising efforts.
