A group of 14 selfless York teenagers have raised over £800 for CAFOD after some impressive fundraising efforts, including a 15 mile walk and a night sleeping on the streets of York.
The youngsters, who are all aged between 15 and 17, were raising the money as part of their experience with the National Citizen Service (NCS), which involves youngsters in social action projects to help them build skills for life and work.
The money raised was used to buy a CAFOD community water supply gift, which will help a community establish their own supply of clean, safe water by providing the materials and training to build and maintain handpumps and water tanks.
The meeting at St Therese of Lisieux Church in Ingleby Barwick will be an opportunity to meet with other CAFOD supporters and volunteers.
The gathering is open to anyone and will take place at 7pm on Wednesday September 20.
CAFOD representative in Middlesbrough, David Cross, said: “This is a great opportunity to learn more about CAFOD and the Harvest Fast Day appeal for El Salvador.
“Everybody who attends will be made to feel very welcome and I am looking forward to it.”
