The Government is matching pound for pound every donation made to the Lent appeal, which must be targeted at the poorest 50 countries in the world.
We have set a target of £2012 to aim for, in obvious deference to the year, which will be doubled as a result of the Government scheme..
As of the end of the appeal, we raised over £3000. This was then matched pound for pound by the government, resulting in over £7000 going to CAFOD as a direct result of the generosity of the Parish.
