CAFOD – El Salvador and Columbia

Our parish has supported CAFOD’s work with the Puentecitos community in El Salvador for the last 3 years.  We raised £491 from book sales in the church foyer and £2,511 from our parish team running the 2015 Great North Run.  Read here about the amazing projects that have been completed, helping to improve people’s income and food production in this very poor region of the country.  From January 2019 our parish will support people in Magdalena Medio, Columbia through CAFOD’s HandsOn programme.
