A Feast of Fantastic Festive Fundraising at Fressingfield!

BungayCafodStallShirleyMary750-640x486The CAFOD team in Fressingfield (part of St Edmund’s Parish Bungay and Harleston) have achieved their target of making £1000 for the development charity in 2018.

Present at the six produce markets in the Suffolk village, Mary Kirk, Shirley Kalinauckas (pictured right) – with help from Shirley’s husband Mark – inspired parishioners to bring cakes, scones, sausage rolls, jams, preserves, plants and garden produce to sell for Cafod’s Connect2Peru appeal.

What helped them achieve the four-figure sum were the beautiful cot quilts made by Bungay parishioner Felicity Todd. “These have really boosted our proceeds,” said Mary. “We can’t thank Felicity enough.

“CAFOD is one of our parish’s two chosen charities. A wonderful and dedicated team of a few people work hard every time we appeal for goods and produce for the stall. We’re happy to collect items from anyone who is able to contribute and always welcome new volunteers. If you would like to help in 2019 get in touch with the St Edmunds’s CAFOD team email via eastanglia@cafod.org.uk or ring 01223 358552 or 07779 804252.”
