Christmas Charity Bazaar and Run for the elderly poor
KUCHING — Catholic Welfare Services Council Sarawak (CWS) is organising a charity bazaar and run on Saturday, 15December to raise funds in aid of the operations and maintenance costs for the ‘Home of Peace’ elderly poor and needy.
The Christmas Charity Bazaar and Run 2018 hopes to raise at least RM200,000 through this effort. With 25 elderly poor residents at the Home and 22 staff, the annual operating and maintenance cost is about RM400,000.
The Charity Run revolves around the theme “Run for the Elderly Poor”.
CWS is targeting at least 3,000 runners with sponsor cards for the 3km run which is non competitive. Families are encouraged to participate. The Run will begin and end at the Archdiocesan Curia and Cathedral Pastoral Centre (ACCPC) of St Joseph’s Cathedral. The rules and regulations of the run are detailed on the sponsor cards.
The sponsor cards were distributed late September, together with the Bazaar coupons to various parishes in Kuching as well as some rural parishes.
The Bazaar will have stalls selling food and drinks among others. Coupons are sold at RM50 per booklet. CWS is seeking support from various ministries and individuals to set up stalls.
CWS appeals to all parishioners and their families and friends to support the Charity Bazaar and Run in the spirit of fellowship and Christmas.
