A Family Fast Day organised by the ‘Catholic Agency for Overseas Development’ (CAFOD) will take place on Friday 15 March. The aim of the Fast Day is for families and friends to eat simply and to make a donation to the work of CAFOD, to enable others to simply eat. A Family Fast Day planning meeting will take place at the Coolock Pastoral Centre, London Road, Newcastle-under-Lyme at 6.30pm on Wednesday 20 February.
In conjunction with its supporters and partners, the inter-denominational aid agency Christian Aid aims to expose poverty throughout the world, to help in practical ways to end it, and to highlight, challenge and change the structures which favour the rich and powerful over the poor and marginalised.
