Alix finishes the London Half Marathon
Congratulations to Alix Downing from Our Lady of Sorrow & St Philip Benizi Fordingbridge who completed the London Landmarks Half Marathon on Sunday 25th March. Thank you so much Alix for donating half of your sponsorship money (£500) to the Lent Appeal which will be doubled by the UK Government.
Alix told me about her day “Well, I did it……..but as so often seems to be the case, there’s a story to tell!

Many thanks to St Edmund’s Secondary school in Portsmouth for “giving it up” this Lent and raising an amazing £426 for Lent family fast day. Our CAFOD school visitor Alison Humphreys collected the cheque at a beautiful Stations of the Cross service that the school held on the last day of the Spring term at St Mary’s Church, Fratton. The money was raised through various activities throughout Lent so a HUGE THANK YOU to the students, staff and parents at St Edmund’s for your support.
Don’t forget that all donations collected up to the 12th May will be doubled by the UK Government up to £5 million.
Wow thank you so much to the Young Leaders at Blessed Hugh Faringdon Secondary school in Reading who have completed a 24 hour “Give it Up” Challenge for the Lent appeal. They gave up something or did something extra every hour for 24 hours to raise awareness of those less fortunate than themselves.
What an amazing group of young people – thank you so much !
