Souper Soup Lunch in Tenby

The Ladies Guild: sterling soup makers!

On Sunday 13 October, the Ladies Guild at Holyrood & St Teilo parish in Tenby presented a wonderful array of tasty soups to tempt parishioners as they came into the hall to support CAFOD’s Harvest appeal.

Seven fantastic soup choices included minestrone, tomato, lentil and chorizo, spicy butternut squash, leek and potato, red pepper and butternut squash and pumpkin and potato,

For a £5 donation there was soup, bread & butter, cheese and a choice of ice-cream or cake (plus tea & coffee) what a bargain! The cakes were wonderful too: apple cake, blackberry or pear and pecan.

The church was beautifully decorated for Harvest and the parish priest, Father Mansel Usher, who moved to Tenby earlier in the year from the Mumbles, praised the efforts of everyone involved. It was a really friendly event.

An added bonus, was that two wonderful parishioners have kindly come forward to be CAFOD’s point of contact at Holyrood & St Teilo: Pip & John Large. We look forward to working with them in the future.

We have to mention Mrs Christine Wales, who has been supporting CAFOD for many years; Christine has decided to take a step back from the frontline, but will still be involved. Thank you Christine!

Finally a huge thank you to Holyrood & St Teilo for their marvellous support: the parish raised the magnificent sum of £600 for CAFOD’s Harvest appeal.

Diolch yn fawr iawn!

Here’s our A-Z of fundraising ideas!

This Harvest we heard from 14-year-old Fabiano about the danger he faced on the long walk to collect water in the dark. Now that a solar powered pump has been installed in his village, Fabiano can get water safely, easily and have time and energy for school.

There are many more children who still need our help and who are risking their safety and missing school to get water. Help us this to reach more children and communities in the future. Find out more about volunteering with CAFOD and put your faith into action.
