A note from Young Caritas about the Captain Tom 100 Challenge. Instead of fundraising, we are planning to do 100 of something each weekend and ‘campaign’ for an important issue instead. This is our first one!
We have planted 100 dwarf sunflowers to give to parishioners attending Mass this weekend. This is because we would like to draw your attention to the need to care for our common home as Pope Francis has asked us to in his letter Laudato Si.’
We would like everyone taking a sunflower to make a pledge to do something to encourage pollinator insects and birds to their garden, yard or even the window box. There are ideas on the RSPB and Gardeners World websites of how to #PutPollinatorsFirst and a place to pledge what you plan to do atwww.gardenersworld.com/pollinator-pledge
