CAFOD Family Lent Fast Day Appeal

Our Parish Representative Mr Bob Wright - 01865 461345 

Family Fast Day is on Friday 26 February 2021.

This Lent in lockdown, you and your parish can help transform lives!

           Abdella has to walk ten hours a day to find water to keep his family alive. By sharing Abdella’s story with your parish at livestream Masses, in the e-bulletin and via social media, you can raise life-changing funds.

 ‘If we walk each day of the remaining 30 days of Lent for just one mile at £1per mile that's ~ £30.  Doesn't have to be a mile. Up and down your garden or stairs at 20p per time x 5 times per day for the next 30 days ~ £30.  Whatever you can do, please make a big effort to raise some cash.  If you can't find the time or energy, then please don't let that stop you sending a donation. ’
                                              ~ Bob Wright

Friends of the Holy Land

 FRIENDS OF THE HOLY LAND – A MESSAGE FROM YOUR LOCAL CHAIRMAN

Due to Covid-19, we cannot hold the fund raising events that many of you have supported. Meanwhile, the impact of the virus on Christians in the Holy Land is devastating as so many rely on the income from pilgrimages and tourists. The Charity has launched the FHL Pentecost Challenge to raise funds before Pentecost on 31 May. Three long standing supporters have pledged to match fund the first £100,000, so every £1 you donate will have the impact of £2. Please donate at www.friendsoftheholyland.org.uk/pentecost-challenge and please be generous, recognising what you might have donated in better times from attending our events.

If you have other ideas on how to reach your traditional supporters please share them with us. I will be in touch next week both for your feedback and to ascertain any help we may be able to provide from HQ with any contact details that you may be missing.

Many thanks for your continued support.
