Meeting the UCM, Gosport

This week our community fundraiser, Sandra, met with the Union of Catholic Mothers, Gosport. The Hampshire based group has supported the Cardinal Hume Centre since 1999.

Sandra said: “It was a great pleasure to meet some of the members and also visitors from neighbouring parishes. It is always very inspiring to hear about why people support us and to share ideas.”UCM Gosport

A couple of the people in the group shared their memories of when they met Cardinal Hume.

They were interested to hear about our homework club and also how we have an increasing number of local companies participating in our new Foot in the Door programme. Such programmes give a real boost to the number of clients finding employment, which was of particular interest to the group.

Sandra was very grateful for their time: “It is such a privilege to meet long term donors and to answer their questions about the Centre.”

Now we are looking forward to the Gosport UCM visiting the Centre this summer.
