News & Events
Seventh Annual Plant and Cake Sale - THANK YOU!
It was a very successful and enjoyable sale. We had over 200 visitors. The weather improved and the plants were selling as fast as in the January sales. People were so kind and generous baking cakes or growing plants for the sale. The total raised for CAFOD's Ethiopia project was £3,026 - a record. The organisers wish to express a huge vote of thanks to all who supported the sale. Plans are already afoot for next year!
And many, many thanks to everyone from Henry and Nuala Rosenvinge
Organised by Lyndhurst Catholic Church, all proceeds will go to CAFOD's work in Ethiopia.
