Lent ideas

1st March 2019

Spring is here! Signs of new life and resurrection are seen in trees coming back to life and flowers blooming. As a Christian charity, we turn our thoughts to Easter and the fullness of life offered by Jesus Christ. This new life is for all and we share this through the work we do at the foodbank – offering love, hospitality and hope to those people in need who visit our centres. You can help support this life-giving and life-changing work by trying one of our Lent challenges.

The #40for40 challenge asks you to collect 40p for each of the 40 days of Lent and then donating it to us in whatever way you chose. You can, of course, boost your giving by filling out a gift aid form, which can be found here. There is also a poster you can use to promote this challenge 40for40 Poster

Alternatively, you can follow our AdLent calendar. Like our Advent calendar, each day has a different item we need to put in our parcels. Simply put each item in a box, tick off your calendar, and bring it to us when you have finished. Why not use it to arrange a collection in your workplace? Or, use it as an opportunity to begin a daily practice of gratitude, giving thanks for the blessings in your life. AdLent Calendar Foodbank 2019
