Connect2 & HandsOn programmes

Our parish supports CAFOD and its Connect2 projects.  This began with the Puentecitos community in El Salvador in 2016.  Read here about the amazing projects have been completed, helping to improve people’s income and food production in this very poor region of the country.  From January 2019 we have supported people in Magdalena Medio, Columbia through CAFOD’s HandsOn programme.  We have done this in several ways:

-from Lent and Harvest appeals
-donating and selling used books in the church foyer – in 2016 we raised £216
-supporting our parish team running in the Great North Run each September – since 2005 they have raised over £10,000 to support CAFOD and local charities through sponsorship from the parish, families and friends.

 Our 2015 team at the finish!
