Be a Summer FUNraiser

With the approach of warmer weather – take advantage of the sunny days and take on a Summer FUNraiser for CAFOD!

From Waterford to Dungarvan for CAFOD

Having heard about CAFOD’s work at school, last summer Aoife (aged just nine!) organised her very own Summer FUNraiser for CAFOD in her school holidays.

With Dad, Iain, she cycled an impressive 30 kilometres in one morning along the beautiful Waterford Greenway on the South-West Coast of Ireland.

As well as enjoying stunning scenery (and the odd break for a refreshing ice lolly), Iain and Aoife also managed to smash their fundraising target by raising an amazing £393 for CAFOD’s work with people struggling with poverty overseas!

When asked what she would say to someone considering doing a Summer FUNraiser this summer, Aoife replied:

“Think about the support you can provide to people and families maybe not so fortunate as us, and just do it!”

“All it takes is one good person to restore hope!”

Pope Francis

Last summer, it was their chance to be that one good person. This year, it could be yours! Don’t miss out on the opportunity to restore hope to people living in poverty today.

Whatever you do this summer, have FUN, get active and raise FUNds for CAFOD!
