#aCanaDay for Lent

It feels like Spring has come early this year - just in time for our Spring food appeal.

Lent begins on 6th March 2019 and is traditionally seen as a time to give up things. Well here is an opportunity for you to do something different and give back something to help others instead!

This year we are launching #aCanaDay for Lent food appeal.

It does what it says on the tin - provides an opportunity for you to donate a can of food each day for 40 days (excluding Sundays) from 6th March to 18th April. Collect all your tins together, then, after Easter, when we celebrate all that Jesus has done for us, drop off your donations at The Well or at our drop-off points across the city.

Supporting over 8500 people each year means we get through ALOT of canned food. We, and the many families and single people we support would be so grateful for cans of the following items:

Soup
Peas
Carrots
Sweetcorn
Tomatoes
Spaghetti
Potatoes
Meat
Fish
Pulses
Custard
Fruit
Rice Pudding

….but please NO baked beans (as we have LOADS)

We do hope you can join our #aCanaDay for Lent appeal or help us by sharing this blog with your family, friends and work mates. You could always do a collection together.
