CAFOD Volunteer Maggie running the CAFOD Stall

Thank you to volunteers, Andrew Mears and Maggie for running a CAFOD stall at the Our Lady of Dolours, Hendon Christmas Fayre.

 The aim of the stall was to raise awareness of CAFOD’s work and raise some funds too.

Parishioners were invited to take part in a fun activity involving dropping pegs into a bottle and earning sweets as prizes.

The stall raised over £100 for CAFOD!

Thank you to all in the Parish for their support.  Perhaps you could Fundraise for CAFOD too?  Click here to see our A to Z of Fundraising ideas
