Bags of Ideas and Growing Fundraising at St. Mary and St. George parish Totnes

Plants on the way to CAFOD Stall

St. Mary and St. George have raised over £400 since lent this year.  Recently they have done a sponsored slim, plant stall and are hoping to start a fruit and veg box over summer, all in aid of CAFOD.

I am sure all reading this like ourselves are inspired by this fantastic fundraising.  So why not get involved yourself,  are you or do you know any budding slimmer’s or people with green fingers or other creative talents together you can make a real difference to lives of our sisters and brothers around the world and put your faith into action. It does not need to be anything complicated a simple stall at the back of church with an honhesty box will do.
