A delightful soup was served after the 12.15 Mass at St. Edward’s in support of our Harvest Fast Day appeal and a raffle added to the event.

Parish CAFOD volunteer, Julia, said

‘Our thanks go to Sue and Tina for making the delicious soup and also all those who came and supported the event.  We raised a wonderful total of £248 from the raffle and the lunch.

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

Our thanks also go to the organisers, to the cooks Sue and Tina and the hungry diners for all of their support.

Tubes of change raise over £260 in Camberley and Bagshot

Tubes of change!

Tubes of change!

Many thanks to all those at Camberley & Bagshot parish for raising over £260 for Connect2 Cambodia. Jo Carroll, our CAFOD parish volunteer told us about their simple but novel way of raising money.

Towards the end of 2015 when the Camberley & Bagshot Catholic Parish CAFOD/J&P group started to fundraise for the CAFOD connect2 Cambodia project one of the group had the idea of collecting small donations in tubes placed at the back of the three churches in the parish. This was to raise awareness within the parish of the new fundraising project and that many Cambodians live on less than 50p a day. Recently we put our CAFOD ‘tubes’ out again for two weekends to raise awareness that Connect2 programme  is now supporting a new area in Cambodia. The total raised over the two weekends was an amazing £264.36. “

To find our more about Connect2 projects please listen to the webinar Update from Ethiopia by our Step into the Gap volunteers on Thursday 8th June (today) at 7pm . As part of their trip they visited the Connect2 community in Sebeya Ethiopia .
