Thank you for visiting the CAFOD Candlelight Fund in memory of Hilda van Stockum, who sadly died on All Saints' Day, 2006.

Hilda was a loving mother, an award-winning author and artist; and a lady whose faith and compassion shone through her daily life. To commemorate her life and values, Hilda's family have set up a Candlelight Fund in her name. Contributions to this fund will help to support CAFOD's work alongside communities living in poverty around the world.

We are honoured that CAFOD's efforts will stand as a tribute to Hilda. Her memory will live on in our work and in the lives of all those touched by this kindness. By remembering one very special life, you will be touching thousands more. 

Should you wish to pay tribute to Hilda, donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. CAFOD will receive your money electronically and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in Gift Aid will be added to your donation at no cost to you. You can also send your gifts directly to Hilda's Candlelight Fund by post or by telephone on 020 7095 5525. 

In addition those contributors listed below, several individuals have kindly made offline donations to CAFOD. These include Mrs Sheila O'Neill, Mr and Mrs Shotton, BN Oakley,Gwendolyn Champriss and Kathy Gordon.

Please join with us in remembering a very special lady who will be sorely missed. May her soul rest in peace.
