Lent is nearly upon us once again this year, and many people will feel the need to challenge themselves over this period, for various reasons.
The idea of giving up our favourite treats for a whole 40 days can seem quite daunting, so how about looking at it a different way and giving instead, or as well as, giving up?
£1 a day seems not a lot doesn't it and people often wonder what this could do to support us, well if you saved that every day over lent that would be £40, which could do a lot;
- -A memory box for a child and the resources needed to fill it
- -Training for a volunteer to support children at events and residential weekends
- -Information and books for a family following a bereavement
- -Telephone support to those supporting a child
How amazing it would be to feel you had given as well as or indeed instead of, giving up this year?
There are loads of things you could consider trying to avoid; takeaway coffee, cake, chocolate, crisps…. Or why not come up with something as a work team or family group?
