We would like to thank all those who donated a record sum of £500 to Fr David in Zambia. A good number attended on 18th December and most generously donated far more than the £2.50 minimum amount suggested. Many others, who were unable to attend on this occasion, also donated generously.
This is a particularly worthwhile cause because there are no administrative expenses so the whole amount is transmitted direct to Fr David`s account. He then distributes it, mostly in small amounts, to the particularly needy in his large parish, as you can read in the letters he regularly sends us, which often appear in St Margaret`s Page.
Fr Patrick Fitzgerald WF - Fr Fitz - was a regular visitor to St Margaret’s since the 1960s as his mother was a parishioner here.
