YOUTH 2000 Youth 2000 is holding its annual Summer Youth Festival at Ampleforth Abbey for the second year running. A cake sale at the Youth 2000 festival is how we make money to subsidise places for people who otherwise wouldn't be able to attend, including this year, some refugees. So, it would be great if some people in the parish could bake some cakes by Friday 26th August and either bring them to my house or let me know where they can be picked up. If you’d like to help contact Amanda Toone: email@example.com

CAFOD CAFOD is the official overseas aid agency of the Catholic Church in England and Wales. We work with some of the most hard-to-reach communities around the world and those living in the hardest of circumstances. We believe in tackling the root causes of poverty and this is why we ask our supporters to take part in our campaigns which address poverty and injustice head-on. We encourage people to sign petitions, meet their MPs and contact big businesses etc. Together we’ve witnessed some historic breakthroughs such as debt relief for struggling countries, action by government on climate change and large companies signing up to ethical agreements. Thank you for joining us in this work. Do have a look at our current campaign which is about food cafod.org.uk/food and help make the world a better place for all.
