Bishop Challoner Charities Group
Fantastic news from Bishop Challoner Secondary school in Basingstoke that this Lent they are raising money for community toilets. They have accepted the Lent fast day “Give it Up” challenge and are turning treats into toilets! Community toilets are a great way to stop the spread of deadly diseases like cholera and typhoid.
As you can see on the display each small toilet represents £1 raised and a large toilet represents £10 raised. So far they have raised £450 which is an amazing amount and by the end of term they have to achieve their target of £850! Don’t forget that this Lent the UK Government will double all donations so we hope you keep “giving it up” over the next few weeks and achieve your target . Many thanks to the students, staff and parents for all your support.

Artistic Young CAFOD Supporter
A HUGE THANK YOU to a young CAFOD supporter from the Isle of Wight who used her artistic talent to raise money for the Lent family fast day appeal. She drew 16 fantastic pictures of horses and then auctioned them off and raised £20 which will be doubled to £40 by the UK. Government. What a great idea to use one’s talents to help children around the world who are suffering from malnutrition. Thank you so much!
Inspired by our young supporter to fundraise for CAFOD there are lots of ideas here.
Eager buyers at the sale of unwanted Christmas presents
What a fantastic idea to have a sale of unwanted presents to raise money for CAFOD’ s Lent Family fast day appeal and also a great example of recycling! So many thanks to Joy and Barbara two of our CAFOD parish volunteers at St Bede’s Church Basingstoke for organising the sale which raised over £450. This amount will be doubled by the UK Government which will means that many more of our brothers and sisters overseas can live lives free from hunger.
Don’t forget that any donation made to the Lent Family fast day appeal between 13th February and 12th May will make double the difference up to £5 million.
