Ways to stand up for Zimbabw

A night of comedy for Zimbabwe takes place next Monday, 17 November at 8pm at the Comedy Store in Leicester Square.

First Sunday Plus partners CAFOD hosts a fantastic night of stand-up and sketches in aid of CAFOD's work in Zimbabwe. Jocelyn Jee Esien of Little Miss Jocelyn fame introduces a host of comedy acts including top stand-ups Paul Kerensa, Carl Donnelly & Stefano Paolini, and sketch duo Rosie Wilkinson & Helen O'Brien. Funds raised go towards CAFOD's emergency programme in Zimbabwe, providing food, fertiliser and seeds to thousands of people at risk of starvation.

Following an urgent request from Zimbabwe's Jesuit Provincial, Fr Steve Buckland SJ, the British Jesuits have launched an appeal for Zimbabwe.

The Director of Jesuit Missions, Fr Tim Curtis SJ reports that they urgently need to raise £180,000 by the end of December. Fr Steve is trying to get two shipments of food into Zimbabwe before Christmas. For more information, or to donate, click here: http://jesuit.org.uk/latest/081015.htm
