CAFOD Lent Project – our Lenten alms giving will be used to support CAFOD’s work in Zimbabwe to provide villages with the tools and seeds they desperately need to grow crops to feed their families, provide some surplus for sale and seeds to sew in the future to grow more food. Peanut and sesame seeds cost £22 per family; a mixture of vegetables £50 and gardening tools to be shared by 6 families £250.
The Overseas Aid & Development Commission will match fund £ for £ every £1 we collect and the total will then be doubled by the UK government. So every £1 you give will mean £4 reaches Zimbabwe!
Further details are on the website – https://cafod.org.uk/Give/Donate-to-CAFOD/Lent and notice boards. Please note that the fast day envelopes and also collecting boxes are available in the church porches. Many thanks for your support.
