A young woman based in the Chaplaincy at Newman University has recently returned from a three-week long trip of a lifetime to meet communities in the Holy Land who have been supported by the international development charity CAFOD.

Caroline Collins, aged 22, is devoting a year of her life to volunteering for CAFOD in her local area and has recently had the chance to meet the communities whose lives have been transformed.

Now returned Caroline will be sharing messages from the overseas communities she has met with her own community – in schools, parishes and local groups.

She is also encouraging others to seize CAFOD's Step into the Gap opportunity. Find out more here
