PAtrick Pam Campaign meet

Patrick Taulo, Campaign Volunteer Coordinator discussing campaigning with Pam Lloyd

We are delighted to welcome Patrick Taulo to the CAFOD Leeds team. Patrick has recently taken up a voluntary position in the Leeds CAFOD Volunteer Centre as Campaign Volunteer Coordinator. Patrick comes to the office, usually once per week to help Campaign Volunteers across the Diocese of Leeds.

 

At a recent visit to the Leeds Volunteer Centre, Patrick met with Pam Lloyd, who has been volunteering for CAFOD in Leeds for many years.

Pam has a wealth of experience of campaigning and offered advice and support to Patrick in his new role,

“Always remember that the little actions volunteers take in support of campaigns will all add together to great effect.

“You and the volunteers you support, may wonder if their name on a petition, or a letter to the MP will make any difference to our brothers and sisters in the Global South, but I would assure you it all adds up and everyone’s voice counts”

Patrick has recently attended training in London with the Campigns team and over 20 other volunteers helping to coordinate campign actions across England and Wales. “It was onderful to meet with others who will be volunteering to support those interested in campaigning in their local communities. I studied International Development and this is a good way for me to put my skills into action, I can’t wait to get started. I am looking forward to meeting up with CAFOD supporters and campigners over the next few months.”

Patrick will be contacting our CAFOD Campaign Volunteers over the next few months to ask what actions they are engaging in and how they can get more involved. To arrange a time to meet with Patrick to talk about how you campaign in your local school, parish or community please email pchabviaka@cafod.org.uk
