Our Tariro fundraising

During Lent we raised money for Tariro, a charity that supports young people living in Zimbabwe.

The word Tariro is from the Shona language – the main language of Zimbabwe – and it means hope, which is what the charity seeks to give to the young people. The charity helps provide young people with an education and bring them out of poverty.

Tariro is a part of the work of the Community of the Resurrection in Mirfield, West Yorkshire, and it is also supported by the Tariro Sisters living in Zimbabwe.

Tariro is doing wonderful work in giving young people hope and a purpose in life, so it is great that we have been able to support them during Lent.

We raised £145.51 through our Soup and Bread Lunch, and people collecting spare change in jars throughout the season.

So, thank you for the support. A special thank you to: Fiona, Fr Chris, Fr Ian, Fr John, Cheryl, Ann, Noel and Valerie, Pedia, Andrew, Olly, Kim and Jeannie for taking jars to collect change in. Thank you all for your help, and sorry if I missed anyone’s names off!

You can read more about Tariro on their website, where you can also make a donation.
