This Lent, we are supporting CAFOD’s ‘Give it up!’ campaign. As a Catholic community, we want to help some of the poorest communities around the world.
All we need to do is simply choose something, give it up (whether it’s biscuits, sweets or something else) and donate the money saved to CAFOD. Then we can watch our fasting transform into something amazing that helps poor communities. For example:
£1 buys seeds for a family to grow beans
£10 means a family has enough seeds to grow nutritious vegetables for a year
£33 supplies a family with safe water
£85 helps build a community toilet with handwashing facilities.
For Family Fast Day we will be making a school river (of silver coins) to see how much money we can raise all together.
