GLOBAL CHALLENGE – LENT APPEAL
Give up something for Lent to provide school meals for pupils at Crossroads School in Soroti, Uganda.
On the Global Challenge website there is a 40 days of Lent tracker to record your progress. Just remember, you are helping to provide school meals for pupils at Crossroads Secondary School in Soroti, where approximately £5 pays for a student’s school meals for a whole month! The easiest way to send cash donations to Global Challenge is by donating to the online Stewardship “Give UP Something Nice for Beans and Rice” fundraising page: https://www.stewardship.org.uk/partners/globalchallengecharity/oneoff (this special page is open NOW for donations up until 30 April 2023.)
Just a little reminder on Easter Sunday at our 10:30 am service we will follow our usual tradition of bringing a flower (any type you like) for you to bring forward during the service.
