Could you volunteer for CAFOD Middlesbrough?

If you care about global poverty, can work with children and young people and are able to travel to schools and parishes in your local area, you may want to think about signing up as a volunteer.
 
As part of your role, you will be required to deliver a short presentation on an aspect of our work.
 
You don’t need to be a global expert or a trained teacher and CAFOD offers our volunteers a full training programme, ongoing support and a wide range of exciting materials and resources to get you up and running.
 
CAFOD representative in Hallam, Jeremy Cain, said: “This is a brilliant opportunity and we are a very friendly bunch at CAFOD!
 
“All the support you need will be put in place and we have already had a number of volunteers thrive in their roles with us.”
 
If you would like to find out more, contact Jeremy Cain by calling 07710094454 or emailing jcain@cafod.org.uk.

Fishy Fundraiser at York School

Children at St Wilfrid’s School in York raised £125 for CAFOD thanks to a Lenten project organised by the Mini Vinnies.

St Wilfrid's

St Wilfrid’s held a fish-themed fundraiser

They prepared an assembly to explain the project and requested a small donation to the Lent Fast Day appeal.

Cut out fish shapes decorated by the pupils and containing a prayer or commitment of care to be undertaken during Lent were displayed around the school hall.

We are very grateful to all schools and parishes who took part in fundraising activities this year.

Without your generous support, the work of CAFOD would not be possible.
