Green hearts showing care for the earth

Green hearts at Ss Leonary and Mary

Parishioners at Ss. Leonard & Mary’s church in Malton took part in our campaign action, http://cafod.org.uk/Campaign/One-Climate-One-World/Make-a-heart  to show their care for the earth and the things they love that are threatened by climate change. They adorned display boards with green hearts containing written messages of the things they want to protect. They had already raised their concerns by contacting their local MP, Kevin Hollinrake who informed Amber Rudd, the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change of their activities. Keep up the great work!
