CHALLENGES

Typical rural scene
Lent: the forty days leading up to Easter, when traditionally people give something up (e.g. chocolate).

This year we challenge you to give up something that will also benefit the wider world by empowering those who have no luxuries to give up. Here are our ideas, but there are many more. Be creative!
