A Scarborough parish decided to hold their monthly soup lunch in aid of CAFOD’s East Africa Crisis Appeal.
St Peter’s church managed to raise £195 for the crisis appeal, which launched in March.
Despite the challenges, CAFOD makes sure that aid reaches the families who are most in need, through the network of trusted local organisations which CAFOD works with in South Sudan, Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya.
Sue Stubbings helped organise the lunch, which was attended by 27 parishioners.
She said: “We had soup and rice pudding on offer and it was a really lovely event.
“I am sure raising money for CAFOD become a yearly event because everybody had such a good time and everybody was full!”
The UN has described this as the worst humanitarian crisis for more than 70 years and incredibly, £1million was raised for the appeal in just one week.
