The Knights of St Columba council 137 raised an amazing £1,400 to fund CAFOD water projects. Their treasurer Chris Fitzgerald organised a Grand Draw and helped sell raffle tickets at St Georges, Walthamstow, St Josephs, Leyton and Christ the King parish, Chingford. Prizes ranged from £200 to a lovely hamper.
Joint Diocesan Manager Joanna Jarvis was invited to collect the cheque after Mass at St Josephs and was delighted to meet the Knights and their wives from neighbouring churches and their Grand Knight Tony Boahene .
Many thanks must go to Chris for all he did, and we thank him and the Knights for their ongoing support – a CAFOD Quiz is planned for the spring.
