CAFOD News, and ‘giving through your will’:

CAFOD have been in touch to update us about the Lent Family fast donations. The Catholic Community of England & Wales raised an incredible £4 million this Lent. With ‘UK Aid’ matched funding that figure will be raised to £8 million! This will make a huge difference to some of the world’s poorest people; so thank you for your generous support. CAFOD have also asked us to raise awareness of the difference people leaving a gift to CAFOD in their will can make. This can be a very important help to CAFOD, and last year they received £9 million through gifts in people’s wills! If you would like to find out more we have copies of a CAFOD booklet entitled ‘what remains?’ available. There are copies on our noticeboards, and if you would like to take one, please see the Clergy who have copies available.
