Parishioners are holding Lenten lunches every Friday during Lent. The lunches, which will take place after Stations of the Cross, will consist of homemade soup, bread, Fairtrade bananas and drinks. The money raised from the lunches will go to support our Dig Deep campaign.
Mary Huntley, a parishioner at St Bede’s, said: “We have been holding Lenten lunches for some years. Besides raising money for CAFOD it is a good occasion which brings people together.
“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.”
