Keen cyclist, Nick Jarvis, said:
“We’re a CAFOD family through and through, and this is my third event in the last eight years, Tom, my son, ran the London marathon for CAFOD a few years ago, where he was the youngest person to do it that year, and my wife, Joanna celebrated her 10th year working for CAFOD by confronting her fear of heights by doing an abseil.
“This will be the second time I have completed the London-Surrey 100: Sadly, I don’t think I’ll do it as well as 2013 as the training has not been easy with the poor weather we had earlier this year, but I’ll try my best for CAFOD. I will have raised nearly £2,000 for CAFOD doing three bike rides.

“I think about the people CAFOD supports and I ask myself how would I cope if my house was destroyed or if I lost my family.
“I imagine if my family were in this position. We should help however and whoever we can, and thinking about our global neighbours is what keeps me going to the end, despite being exhausted.”
Thank you so much to friends, family and members of my parish, St Edmund’s Loughton, who have donated and supported me so far.”
Ethiopia’s long rains are due in a month’s time and CAFOD is supporting farmers with seeds as they prepare their land. Yet, even if normal rainfall occurs, it will take time for people to harvest their crops and replenish their livestock. These will be critical months as families face a deepening ‘hunger gap’.
The charity is appealing for £3 million which will allow CAFOD to scale up its current emergency response work across four of the worst affected areas; SNNPR Region State, Oromia Regional State, Tigray and Afar Regional States.
