Competition: Enter for a chance to win Delia’s Complete Cookery Course in honour of Lent 2017
3 April 2017
Cook, TV presenter and CAFOD ambassador Delia Smith CBE has donated five signed copies of her classic first-time cook book Delia’s Complete Cookery Course in honour of this year’s 'Big Fish' Lent Appeal.
The film features the story of Florence, a widow from Northern Zambia whose life was transformed through fishing.
When her husband died in a mining accident, Florence, 41, struggled to make a living. But thanks to the generosity of CAFOD supporters, our partners in the area, the Sisters of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, gave Florence tiny fish the size of a thumb and taught her how to build fish ponds and care for the growing fishes.
This has now turned in a thriving business, not only enabling Florence to provide for her children’s future but a valuable skill she has passed on to others - transforming the lives of those in her local community.
