A huge thank you goes out to St Anne’s Catholic High School, who this year held their annual Christmas Bazaar in support of CAFOD!
The school, in Palmers Green, North London, decided to donate the money raised from this year’s bazaar to support CAFOD’s work helping the people affected by the Typhoon Haiyan disaster in the Philippines. The event, which took place on 23 November, offered a wide range of fun activities such as plate painting and a raffle. CAFOD volunteers Michael Walsh and Patricia Bednarikova, and Tanya Jenkins of CAFOD’s youth team attended the event to thank the school for their wonderful generosity.
Thanks again to all the students, staff and parents at St Anne’s for making such a fantastic contribution to CAFOD’s work in the Philippines! CAFOD and the other members of the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) are currently engaged in a massive effort to give immediate aid to people affected by the typhoon and to help them in the long-term to rebuild their lives in the aftermath of this disaster. If you would like to donate to the appeal, visit the CAFOD Philippines appeal webpage, or go to CAFOD’s emergencies news page for the most up to date information on what we are doing to respond to this crisis.
Of course, even as CAFOD responds to disasters such as the typhoon in the Philippines and the ongoing violence in Syria, our work continues with developing communities around the world. With Christmas coming up, why not give a gift with more meaning and help support CAFOD’s work by giving a loved one a world gift?
