CAFOD says a huge ‘thank you’ to everyone who participated in this year’s Walk Against Hunger challenge! Whether you walked, jogged, skipped, or even swam – we hope you found the experience fun and rewarding.

With the feast of Pentecost being celebrated earlier this month, Lily Bliss of CAFOD’s Legacy team shares her thoughts on the power of a gift.
