A member of our Education volunteers team was given a very warm welcome before assembly and was able to start the morning with an explanation of what the letters that make up CAFOD mean and that CAFOD works and helps people living in poverty, whatever their race, culture and religion. No-one is left out.
Autumn, the wonderful season of mellow fruitfulness, has seen our dedicated team of schools volunteers visiting schools across the Archdiocese.
We cannot thank them enough for their enthusiasm and commitment to supporting our vision for change and our agenda for action.
At Harvest time, we celebrate and give thanks for the food we have.
Our team of education volunteers across Cardiff and Menevia had a joint day of working on Monday 15 May when they met together in the Cardiff volunteer centre.
The purpose of the refresher training was to bring together all our wonderful volunteers – experienced and newly-recruited, to explore the resources which we are using in schools during the Summer term and beyond.
St Joseph’s Cathedral School in Swansea organised a day of fundraising fun for the whole school on Friday 3 March and the staff chipped in too!
A parent of one of the children was delighted to support the school’s initiatives and volunteered to help out too – by providing a wonderfully generous Fish and Chip lunch for the staff, which was delivered to the school by two brothers – Ouday and Emir Hiks, from the local chippy.
What a delicious treat and fantastic way to raise funds too!
