Chris Hannington RIP

We are sad to report the death of CAFOD volunteer Chris Hannington who died peacefully on 22 January, following a battle with cancer.

He was a faithful CAFOD volunteer as well as a Justice and Peace activist both in his parish, St Peter in Chains Church at Stroud Green and across the Westminster Diocese.

For many years Chris visited parishes to talk about our work overseas and to thank parishioners for their support of CAFOD. He also encouraged people to volunteer.

Chris was an active volunteer, assisting at many training days, running CAFOD stalls and hosting events with CAFOD partners visiting from overseas. His volunteering activities for CAFOD were very much a demonstration of Chris putting his faith into action.

CAFOD staff and volunteers joined a packed church of family and friends for his funeral on Friday 6 February at St Peter in Chains Church in Stroud Green.

God Bless you Chris.
