A HUGE THANK YOU to students at Bishop Challoner Secondary School in Basingstoke who have raised an amazing £1724.20 so far this Lent . This year’s Lent display focused on the cost of providing disease resistant ducks to families like Mahinur in Bangladesh because Mahinur lives near a river ducks are easier to keep than chickens. Each duck on the display represents £26 raised as a flock of 10 ducks cost £26. There have been sponsored events, sales, raffles and games to raise funds so thank you all so much for your generosity. We look forward to finding out what the final total for Lent will be!
Also many thanks to students who gave up their free time to staple CAFOD fast day envelopes to the parish newsletters. Thank you so much!
