One World Group

Our group grew from the previously known, Third World Group and before that, the Co Workers Group, raising money for Mother Theresa.

However we have been the One World Group since the early 1990's and exist primarily to raise funds for various organisations, especially one's with no or very small overheads and expenses. Our constitution dictates that 50% of what we raise goes to CAFOD, the other 50% going to causes suggested by members of the Parish. We try to arrange at least one fund raising activity each month. This includes such things as; auctions, coffee mornings, cake sales, seafront stalls, quizzes, our version of Desert Island Discs, treasure hunts, race nights, bric-a-brac sales, BBQ's, and cocktail party's. To be honest, anything we can think of that raises money.

Over the years apart from CAFOD we have raised money for ; Projects in Nepal, Tanzania, Kenya, Bosnia, and recently Ukraine. Also organisations home and abroad such as; Mary's Meals, Mercy Ships, Shelter Box and various Missions, locally, Julia's House, Lantern, Samaritans and Soul Food.

All our fund raising events are open to all, not just members of the Parish. We are happy also to be associated with Fair Trade, Food Banks, Live Simply and all other churches of Weymouth, of any denomination.
