Connect2 is an exciting new way to create solidarity across the world. When a parish joins, they hear directly from people in developing countries who are working hard, often against the odds, to improve their lives. This is their chance to tell you themselves, in their own words, about how your support is changing their lives. You’ll get to know the local people and discover how our partners are making a difference.
Bernard from the parish in Wool, Wareham and Lulworth sent us details of their latest fundraiser.
“We raffled some baskets made by the ladies group in Puentecitos, El Salvador, with whom we are connected under the Connect 2 scheme. These were the baskets remaining from 50 we purchased last June which we sold at our garden fete. We filled the baskets with food, toiletries and an orchid and raised £220 which we will spend on a World Gift”.
Thank you to everyone in the parish for your continued support and for inspiring us all to make a difference.
