Children in Carlton have been encouraged to bring something in that they want to say thank you for as part of fundraising for CAFOD.
The money raised will go to the CAFOD Harvest appeal
St Mary’s Church are raising money in a variety of ways after 11.15am mass on Sunday October 15.
Everybody is invited to bring something they are thankful for to the mass, with a particular emphasis on children. This could be anything from a tin of food to a football.
There is also an opportunity to bring cakes for a stall after mass which will be run by children.
Pupils from Holy Family High School have also been invited to help out with the fundraising.
As part of volunteers’ week, we spoke to two Leeds volunteers who have dedicated their time towards aid agency CAFOD’s exciting Connect2 campaign.
Connect2 links communities in England & Wales with people in Brazil, Ethiopia, El Salvador, Cambodia and Peru.
The scheme is built on CAFOD’s values of solidarity and partnership, where parishes in the UK are able to stand alongside communities overseas to fight against poverty and injustice.
