CAFOD volunteers at Holy Apostles and Martyr’s Church, Wallasey welcomed Angela Eagle MP to their community garden last month.
Volunteers at Holy Apostles and Martyrs parish in Wirral Village have been working towards their livesimply Award and as part of their work, have established a community garden. The space had originally been unused, but thanks to volunteers and a grant from the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority, they are transforming it to a space for the community.
In the video below, the volunteers share their hopes for the project and what impact it will have on the local community.
The livesimply award is an opportunity for Catholic communities – parishes, schools, religious orders and chaplaincies – to respond to Pope Francis’ invitation in Laudato Si’ to “work with generosity and tenderness in protecting this world which God has entrusted to us”.
