Solihull residents encouraged to donate to Harvest appeal.

CHURCHES and schools across Solihull are throwing their weight behind a campaign to put food in the mouths of some of the poorest children in the world.

CHURCHES and schools across Solihull are throwing their weight behind a campaign to put food in the mouths of some of the poorest children in the world.

Catholic aid agency CAFOD is asking residents to get behind its annual Harvest appeal by offering £4. Silhillians raised over £5,000 last year and schools and churches have already been holding masses and fundraising events for the 2012 appeal.

CAFOD’s manager for Solihull, Helen Moseley, said: “This Harvest we’ve got the story of a boy from Zambia called Gift. The idea is to encourage people to make a place at their table for children like Gift.”
