Chelsie Sinton invites you to a concert that could change someone’s life.
Connect2 is our scheme that links parishes in England and Wales to communities overseas. It’s a great way to show solidarity for our sisters and brothers in the south by taking a journey with ordinary people leading extraordinary lives. Through the support of your parish, people’s lives can be transformed.
On Saturday 10th June, we’re organising a concert for our supporters to enjoy a great night out but also as a way of letting people know about the amazing results that Connect2 can achieve. Local band 2econd Wind will be playing a mix of music from the 60s to the 80s so you’re sure to have a good time. There’s a licensed bar and, in true CAFOD spirit, people are being asked to bring food to share. The event is being held at St. Joseph’s parish centre in Birtley from 7 to 11 p.m. If you’d like tickets or for more details, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The pupils across the years at St Gregory’s Academy in Stockton-On-Tees have been working hard raising some money for CAFOD, and all years have played their part!
Last term was a great term for fundraising! Year 1 students made Easter crafts, and sold them, in line with the lead up to Easter. Year 2 hosted an Easter egg decorating competition – a fun way to raise some money! Year 4F asked people to guess how many eggs were in the jar, and Year 6 asked for a donation in exchange for throwing a wet sponges at the teachers – this proved to be popular!!
Continuing their amazing efforts, next term will be full of more great work! The students of reception class will be hosting a coffee morning, and Year 3 will be bringing the cinema to the school by hosting a movie afternoon!
