Corpus Christi parish in Weston-Super-Mare does brilliantly for CAFOD Harvest Fast Day

 Parishioners Alan and Linda Malone of Corpus Christi parish in Weston-Super-Mare wrote to thank all the parishioners there on behalf of CAFOD, parish volunteer Chris Davies outlines. The parish managed to raise for the Harvest Fast day collection £1105.92 of which £587.77 was Gift Aided.  The parish held an auction of harvest produce too, raising a further £75 bringing CAFOD a wonderful total. A special thanks went to the parish auctioneer and his trusty helper who collected the money, as well as many thanks to all who contributed or helped in any way.

Corpus Christi Harvest Festival

Recently Corpus Christi parish in Weston-Super-Mare  held their customary display of sumptuous produce on the altar for Harvest Fast Day.

This gave thanks and praise to God for His bounty.  The produce was then auctioned for the CAFOD Harvest Fast Day Appeal so that those less fortunate might benefit. Parishioner Alan Malone did his usual brilliant job of auctioneer, parting people from their money and the auction raised £130 (more than last year’s record £120.) To date the donation total is £973.60 of which £192.99 is Gift Aided. 

CAFOD money boxes were also utilised in fundraising by the parish for Harvest Fast Day – one contained nearly £60!
