A Big Old Barn Dance

In Full Swing - The Cobham Barndance

In Full Swing – The Cobham Barn Dance

The parish of Cobham have outdone themselves once again by organising a big barn dance in aid of CAFOD. The parish group are used to organising race nights and barbecues but have now turned their hands and feet to dancing.

The dance, which raised £240 for CAFOD was thoroughly enjoyed by all those who attended.

Martin from CAFOD A&B said ‘I wasn’t able to go to this event but I remember other barn dances I’ve been to. They were so much fun, such good exercise and a great way to socialise. It’s nice to think that in raising money for CAFOD people had such a good time and spent time building their parish communities.’

Local Parish Volunteer, Jackie, said that the evening was ‘great fun’

Our thanks go to the Parish of Sacred Heart, Cobham and all those who made the evening a special event.

If you would like help in organising your own social event for CAFOD, then please do get in touch or see our events guides.

Good food, good company and a good cause – a true recipe for a delightful event.
