Our Lady of the Angels in Saltash, Cornwall, wanted to give a World Christmas gift to a family in Africa.
A children’s group called the ‘ Little Angels’ decided to make and decorate salt-dough Christmas CAFOD angels to sell to parishioners to raise enough money to buy a goat.
We had great advice and support from our new Parish Priest Fr. Martin Stone and thus one hundred of the most glittering, flashing and festive angels were for sale.
So great was their generosity, the Little Angels had enough money to purchase not one goat but TWO, and had a little money left over to start our next challenge: we’re hoping to buy a cow for Easter!
