Bexley letter - CAFOD


A Sidcup sixth form student lectured MPs on world hunger in Westminster last week.

Hannah Goodes, of Christ the King: St Mary’s Sixth Form College, in Chislehurst Road, joined 28 other students as part of a campaign called Hungry for Change.

She toured the Houses of Parliament and watched Prime Minister’s Questions before discussing the issue of hunger with politicians including Old Bexley and Sidcup MP James Brokenshire.

The vocal student says she was “shocked” by the amount of people that go to bed hungry each night across the globe.

She added: “I’ve always been inspired by CAFOD’s mission to end poverty and injustice and knowing that MPs care as well has spurred me on to do even more.”

CAFOD’s Hungry for Change campaign is running until October. To play your part, visit
