CAFOD Schools Volunteer, Margaret Hodgson has been doing great work on Power To be in some of our schools encouraging students to think about renewable and environmentally friendly energy. Margaret said “The students explored global statistics and then discussed what shocked them, surprised them and what gave them hope”
St John’s Youth Council in Annitsford raised an incredible £1025 for CAFOD when they held a garden party recently.
It is not the first time St John’s have been able to offer a large donation. Earlier this year they were able to raise almost £3,000 for the East Africa Crisis Appeal in just two weeks.
CAFOD supporter Jerry Laidler, from St John’s Youth Council, said: “A special thanks to all who supported the garden party fun day and made it a great success.
“It was fantastic to see the grounds full of lovely families enjoying themselves, building communities and making happy memories.”
