CAFOD would like to thank Our Lady of Dolours Hendon Parish 200 club for entering CAFOD into their prize draw, assisting CAFODs fight against poverty.
This month through the Parish 200 club, CAFOD won 1st prize which was a prize £100. Their donation of £100 could fund the purchase of a cow to support a community in Ethiopia. A cow is four gifts in one for a struggling family. Its manure can help grow crops, its milk can supplement a family’s diet, plus any extra milk can be sold at market. What’s more, any calves can be passed on to help another family in the community. Through CAFOD your donations pay for a locally – sourced cow, its jabs and training for the family, so that they can look after it correctly.
For Parishes that do not have a 200 club yet! The club works through parishioners paying in £20 each year for a chance to win one of three prizes which can be drawn every two months.
Currently Our Lady of Dolours Hendon Parish 200 club has 140 participants and new entrants are always more than welcome. Half of the money raised through the club becomes the prizes, the other half towards the Parish funds. “I encourage other parishes to start a 200 club and maybe give the proceeds to CAFOD” (Quote from CAFOD volunteer Andy Mears)
Thank you once again to the Parish for their support.
