“However you celebrate the summer, make it hopeful and give what you can to support the most vulnerable people in our world during this global crisis.”

While we can’t meet up for coffee mornings in our parish halls or go to the summer fayres we love this summer, the Catholic community is fundraising in new ways for CAFOD’s Coronavirus Appeal. Bishop David is kindly giving what he saves on flat white coffees during lockdown. Others are giving what they saved on missed haircuts. Supporters are taking on virtual pilgrimages, and walking, running, cycling and crocheting challenges to raise money and give the most vulnerable people hope as they face the coronavirus threat this summer.

  • CAFOD’s Summer of Hope community fundraising campaign aims to raise £100,000 for the Coronavirus Appeal. You can find some new fundraising ideas to get the whole family involved here.
  • You can use CAFOD’s Summer of Hope Just Giving page to encourage friends to support your fundraising for CAFOD or to make a donation.
