A belated thank you to CAFOD Volunteers Maureen and Stan Grabecki and the parish J&P group, for organising a Bread a Soup Supper at their parish of SS Alban and Stephen. It is the first time they had organised the supper, that didn’t stop it being a great success!
Around 90 people attended the supper many helps, thank you for all your support! Stan said “We ate around 30 litres of soup and 13 large loaves of bread and butter”. At the supper supporters were also able to watch the film I, Daniel Blake. The event raised an amazing £535!
Thank you once again to all who were involved in the event whether it be organising or enjoying the delicious soup supper!
We hope that Maureen and Stan’s success encourages you all to fundraise for CAFOD. Stuck for ideas? Check out our A-Z of Fundraising Ideas!

Reflect with us this Lent
God of Love,
Maker of all,
transform my heart through my Lenten journey of prayer,
Help me to see the dignity
in all my sisters and brothers,
made in your image and likeness.
Inspire me to share
the fruits of your creation
so that all your people
can become artisans
of their own destiny.
Through Christ our Lord,
