Ben Oldham, of St Thomas a Becket parish in Wandsworth, London, recently raised a fantastic £450 for CAFOD by hosting a fundraising Curry Night, in the run-up to his doing the Great North Run on Sunday.
The event was a wonderful success and included a raffle – which went down a storm – with prizes from Universal Music, Lotus F1 and Sony Pictures. Ben sent us some photos of his happy guests!
The event was held jointly with Sarah Abbey (both Ben and Sarah are pictured below), with proceeds split between the two.
The fundraiser contributed to Ben’s brilliant final total of £900 – congratulations Ben!
