Can you give up 40 pence for the 40 days of Lent?

The challenge

We are asking people to join us in taking small actions to transform lives by giving up 40 pence for 40 days. With the addition of Gift Aid this comes to £20.40pfor40days-jar1

Or if you feel like challenging yourself to give something up during this period, why not donate the cost of what you save towards The Trussell Trust?

At the end of Lent on 13th April, bank the money you’ve raised and donate it to Hart foodbank. Follow this link for instructions on the different ways to donate money to Hart foodbank.

Don’t forget to join in with the conversation on social media and let us know if you’ll be taking part in #40for40.

 

What is Lent?

Lent is the period of 40 days leading up to Easter. It begins on Ash Wednesday and is seen as a time of reflection where most people choose to give something up or try something new to mark the occasion.
