Harvest Fast Day, Friday, 2nd October 2015 is quickly approaching. Will you be ready to make the most of it? This Harvest, CAFOD will be focussing on Niger, the poorest country in the world!

Come and join us at St Hilda’s Diocesan Resource Centre, 391 West Road, Newcastle from 1.00pm to 3.00pm or 7.00pm to 9.00pm on Thursday 17 September to find out more about life in Niger and hear more of Hamani and Ramatu’s experiences and some of the people CAFOD’s work is supporting.
You will also find out about what you can do to help and you will get to meet some of our great volunteers. We need your support!
The sessions will be facilitated by Jeremy Cain and David Cross (CAFOD Hexham & Newcastle Community Participation Coordinators) and Daniel Collins (CAFOD’s “Hands On” Programme).
Entry is free. Tea and Coffee will be provided.
