Youth fundraising makes double the impact

As part of their school’s community challenge project, students Maria, Elvina and Sona decided to raise funds for CAFOD.  It was great timing as they managed to have their donations doubled by the UK government.  Thus having their donations making double the impact!

How did they raise funds?  By selling cakes in St. Edward’s Catholic Church in Kettering.  They sold the cakes on three consecutive Sundays after Easter and raised an amazing £160 from it!  They handed the cheque over to Fr Paul Gonsalves.

Maria’s dad Zachariah very proudly said, “They put in a lot of effort and did really well.  They also enjoyed the experience.”

Big thanks to Maria, Elvina and Sona for enabling twice as many lives to be transformed.  Thanks also to your parents, friends and parishioners at St Edward’s who supported you.  You are an inspiration!
