16 million are in need of help
Local group ‘The Intones’ performed at St Andrew’s parish hall in Teesville on Friday May 12.

A Scarborough parish decided to hold their monthly soup lunch in aid of CAFOD’s East Africa Crisis Appeal.
CAFOD’s East Africa Crisis Appeal has raised millions
St Peter’s church managed to raise £195 for the crisis appeal, which launched in March.
In East Africa, there are currently over 16 million people in need of urgent food and other life-saving assistance.
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.
As we get closer to Christmas it is only right that our hearts and minds turn towards our sisters and brothers in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone who are battling against the Ebola virus.
Come and join us, in a spirit of prayer and solidarity with those suffering from the Ebola virus and all those giving their time and energy to help overcome it, for a Holy Hour starting at 4.00pm on Sunday 14 December at St Mary and St Romuald Catholic Church, Yarm High Street.
We will take time to quietly reflect and pray.
All are welcome
