CAFOD volunteers from Ss. Leonard and Mary’s Church in Malton, North Yorkshire have shown that a little effort goes a long way! They have been busy recently organising different fun-filled, fundraising activities from a Harvest Table for their Connect2 El Salvador project and a Beetle Drive with a raffle raising a wonderful total of £267! They got parishioners to sign the climate change petition and sent it to their local MP, who responded to say he had pass on their concerns to Amber Rudd MP, the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change who is leading discussions on the Paris Climate talks in December. CAFOD volunteer, Stephanie Winter said “It was a small group but very generous and a fun-filled evening”! Next they are planning to hold a Fairtrade sale and Advent Service – the list, it seems is endless! Well done and thanks to all concerned.
