John and Freda

John and Freda in their garden

This garden party has been running for several years and every time it has been a great success. John and Freda Vine from St Stephen’s Church in Bexley will ensure you are waited on, as you sit under a parasol, at one of their beautiful tables. They will be serving delicious sandwiches, cakes, scones as well as cups of tea, coffee and soft drinks.

Why not host your own garden party or fundraising event this summer?

Guests at a previous garden party enjoy tea and cake in the sunshine

There will even be a raffle and plants for sale.

This is a great way to support CAFOD’s important work and support our less fortunate brothers and sisters, while also having a lovely time and meeting new people. Standing in solidarity with our neighbours, especially those most in need, is one of the key principles of our faith. Attending this event and supporting CAFOD’s work is one important way you can reach out and make a real difference to the lives of some of the world’s poorest people.

Come and make some new friends and join us for a lovely time! We look forward to seeing you there.


Last year’s plant sale!


Freda and John, from St. Stephen’s church in Bexley, have been CAFOD volunteers for many years and fundraising is one way they practice their faith, living it out through action.

If they’ve inspired you to hold your own event you can get loads of fun ideas, advice and resources, including seven simple steps to make it a success. There are loads of great things you can do to raise money. It can be anything from organising a quiz night to running a marathon, from a cake sale to holding a garden party.
