Fundraising Team

Fundraising Team

Our Lady of Fatima supports a handful of very great charitable causes, both locally and internationally. We have a phenomenal small team of Fundraisers who quietly and brilliantly volunteer their time helping to raise funds - their work has been extraordinary. 

AFRICA CHARITY WORK

The Friends of Abeokuta, Nigeria

There has been one main charitable cause which Our Lady of Fatima has helped for many years now and it all began back in 1988 when Fr Joseph from Abeokuta in Nigeria visited our parish. From that time on Our Lady of Fatima has been supporting The Friends of Abeokuta Diocese by financially supporting the training and retreat programmes of the Catechists and the construction of churches, nurseries and priests housing.

One World Group

Also, since the 1990s our parish 'One World Group' has supported and helped raise funds for water supply, construction, education and health in both Bugisi and Zanzibar in Tanzania. We are now looking at ways in which we can help support the parish of Butonga in Tanzania through Fr Elias too.

This Fundraising Team has run so smoothly, under the radar, that not even many parishioners know about it. The team raises funds by holding Car Boot Sales. Tony magically crams all our booty into his van and ferries the team to and from the venues. All the items for sale are kindly donated by our parishioners.


If you would like to join our Fundraising Team or would just like to help out at certain events, please contact the presbytery (parish office).
