A massive thank you to everyone at More House Chaplaincy, Kensington, for holding a charity dinner to raise money for CAFOD’s Hungry for Change campaign!
The event, which took place on Saturday, 15 March, was organised by the More House Charity Dinner Committee along with the students of More House. More than 60 guests enjoyed the delicious meal and helped to raise an incredible total of £1812.98 for CAFOD! This is enough to help train more than 70 farmers in the developing world in new techniques, such as the best ways to build enclosures and vaccinate livestock. This could help them produce enough food for themselves and their families.
Not content with letting their good work end there, students also thought of the needy in the local community and brought food from the dinner to homeless people in their neighbourhood.
Joshua Goh, who helped to organise the event, said: “Know that in your own little way….you have made a difference. You’ve made a difference not only in the lives of the less fortunate, but also in the lives of fellow students in this community here. That is the spirit of More House.”
Thank you again to everyone who helped to make the dinner such an incredible success, whether by helping to organise and run the event, or simply attending and showing your support for those without enough to eat. Organising a fundraising event such as this is a fantastic way to help CAFOD’s work in the developing world. Even something as simple as giving someone a unique and thoughtful present from CAFOD’s World Gifts catalogue can make a huge difference to people in developing communities.
