The cross takes place from 2pm until 5pm and will be opened by Bishop Alison White of Hull.

 Each participant who completes at least one cross will be given a certificate of completion on the day.

The child and the MP

On Saturday 11 May, Hull MP Alan Johnson got the annual Christian Aid & CAFOD Humber Bridge sponsored walk off to a great start. What he didn’t bargain on was having some company as he did his cross of the bridge. This young parishioner from St Anthony and Our Lady of Mercy parish in Hull, asked Mr Johnson if he was going to “do the walk?” When he said he was – she asked if she could walk with him! This young CAFOD supporter raised £134 for CAFOD. Well done!
