Parties raise funds for Ethiopia

Marie admires the plants

Olive and cakeTwo of the older members of Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish, Eastwood, Nottingham our parish have helped raise money for their parish’s connect2:Ethiopia programme.

Marie Lowe held a garden party at her home. She invited friends and family for tea and cakes in her beautiful garden on a sunny afternoon in June. Everyone paid £3 for their refreshments and bought plants and gifts to take home as well.

When it was Olive Maslowska’s 90th birthday, her daughters gave a party for her friends and family. Instead of giving gifts to Olive, it was suggested that people make a donation to CAFOD if they wished.

Together these two events raised £1,200. Thank you Marie and Olive!
