Many parishes across the diocese held soup lunches on family fast day and St Joseph (Thame) was no exception. They had seven mouth-watering soups on offer and many people supported the event.
“It was great to see the turn out” says Theresa Buchanan (parish volunteer). “We had a lovely lunch today, raising £367 for CAFOD”. This will be doubled by the UK government. Theresa also left some Gift Aid envelopes for people to complete and that will increase their donations by 25%.
Thank you St Joseph’s for putting on such a successful and wonderful event. To those who gave their time and skills to make the soup and to those who supported the event. Great show of solidarity and care!
