St Bartholemew’s hold Fairtrade Feast and Fast day for CAFOD!

An enormous thank you goes out to the Justice and Peace group and everyone at St Bartholemew’s parish, St Albans, for once again organising a fantastic Fairtrade Feast and Fast Sunday lunch for CAFOD!

More than 70 parishioners attended the event, which took place in the St Bartholemew’s parish hall on Sunday, 9 March, helping to raise an incredible £269 for CAFOD’s work with people living in poverty and injustice around the world. The lunch included a simple meal and a choice of 13 delicious puddings. While enjoying their food, parishioners took part in a quiz on Fairtrade with the prize of some Fairtrade chocolate for the winners.

Adelheid Smith, who helped to organise the event, said: “Fairtrade parish meals are definitely worthwhile events!”

Thanks again to the Justice and Peace group and everyone who helped to make the event such a great success! Organising a fundraising event is a fantastic way to bring your parish, school or social group together to have fun and help support CAFOD’s work overseas. If you want some ideas of ways you could fundraise for CAFOD, check out our A-Z of fundraising ideas here.

By supporting and promoting Fairtrade within your parish, you can show solidarity with the poor, and benefit banana farmers in South and Central America, as well as other Fairtrade producers worldwide. If 20 more parishes in the Westminster Diocese register, the diocese would qualify as Fairtrade. Please help us reach this goal. If your parish is not already registered as Fairtrade, sign up today!
