Wheelbarrow of wine!

Parishoners at St Agatha’s Church, Dawlish came up with a thirst quenching fundraiser this Lent:

“During March and April this year, we asked for donations of bottles of wine to fill our wheelbarrow.

CAFOD Members: Marcia Doherty, Chris Bloor and Irena Poulsom

CAFOD Members: Marcia Doherty, Chris Bloor and Irena Poulsom

We then asked for £5 in an envelope with the person’s name, address and contact details. This was put into a box and then one envelope pulled out as the winner on Palm Sunday.

The winner won the whole contents of the wheel barrow, which was 30 bottles of wine. What a Happy Easter they had! We also managed to raise £150 for CAFOD in the process”.

What a great idea! Thanks for the lovely report Marcia.
