They think it’s all over!
But if history is anything to go by there’s a lot more to come. Cut the cake but note the date. An equally successful event was held last year, and the year before that! In fact the churches in Hemel Hempstead seem to be making a habit of enjoying their cycles and scooters, and raising lots of money for CAFOD in the process. Well, habits are hard to break and good habits probably shouldn’t be, especially when so much fun is involved. It shouldn’t surprise anyone to see another such cake and another such group of happy youngsters trumpeting their success next year.
So, a huge thank you on behalf of all those hungry, often frightened and despairing children, and their families, who CAFOD help everyday around the world. It’s good to know that our children care and are more than willing to help. A special thank you is in order to the organising team, drawn from volunteers from four local churches, and mention should be made of Father Kim Addison, one of Hemel’s Parish Priests, who, suitably sponsored, took to two wheels and trailed after the children. At least one of us adults is able to keep up with these energetic younger generations.
Fancy organising a bike ride, boat race, crisp eating contest, sponsored meditation or beard shaving? There are loads of ways you can have fun and, at the same time, raise money for CAFOD, your favourite charity. Check out the fundraising page of the CAFOD website Here…..
