Parishioners at St Paul’s Catholic Church in Cantley are not just giving something up for Lent; they are clubbing together to feed some of the hungriest people around the world.
To raise money for Catholic aid agency CAFOD’s ‘Dig Deep’ campaign, the parishioners are holding a fasting lunch of homemade soup and bread roll each Friday for the six weeks of Lent and asking for donations towards the CAFOD Lent Appeal.
Organiser Anne Prior said: “Until we know that children around the world can go to bed with nutritious food in their bellies we will continue to do all we can to support them.
“It’s a fact that one in eight people go hungry every day, not because there isn’t enough food but because of the way it is shared out between us.
“Everyone can do something to change that and during Lent, we will all dig deep within ourselves and our pockets to find ways to tackle this injustice.”
