Parishes throughout the diocese are Hungry for Change!

Thank you to all those who took part in card signings at parishes around North London and Hertfordshire this weekend to help make a difference to those without enough to eat!

More than 1000 CAFOD supporters signed cards at parishes throughout the Westminster diocese, including Our Lady of Muswell, Muswell Hill, Our Lady of Mount Carmel and St George, Enfield, Our Lady and St Joseph, Hanwell, Sacred Heart of Jesus, Kilburn and St Hugh of Lincoln, Letchworth. The cards were addressed to Prime Minister David Cameron, urging him and his fellow world leaders to use their influence to create a fairer global food system.

A huge thanks, once again, to everyone who added their names to more than 20,000 others throughout the UK who are united in working to make 2013 the beginning of the end of world hunger. With both the Hungry for Change and Enough Food For Everyone IF campaigns gaining momentum as this year’s G8 summit approaches, this show of support will really help to draw the attention of politicians to the problems faced by the 1 in 8 who do not have enough to eat.

Many of those that signed cards plan to join thousands at the Big IF London G8 rally in Hyde Park on 8 June. People from around the UK will gather to add their voices to those of the millions around the globe without enough to eat. Join them and help us put an end to world hunger! Get in touch with CAFOD Westminster on 0208 449 6970 or westminster@cafod.org.uk to book places or to get more information about the event.

Card signings are a simple yet extremely effective way to bring resolving world hunger to the attention of our MPs. If you can’t make it to the rally, perhaps you might consider organising a card signing at your own parish when convenient. To get started with this, contact CAFOD Westminster on 0208 449 6970 or westminster@cafod.org.uk.
