Take part in our 40 for 40 challenge this Lent

#40for40    #adlentcalendar

With people struggling to afford food all over the UK, it is important that we can continue to support families in crisis through our network of foodbanks. They provide essential emergency food, emotional support and practical advice to people who find themselves in difficult circumstances.

“I cried tears of joy at the foodbank. You don’t understand, I had no hope, I was so desperate and they were there for me.” – Mother of one.

40 pence for 40 days

We are asking people to join us in taking small actions to transform lives by giving up 40 pence for 40 days. With the addition of Gift Aid this comes to £20.

Or if you feel like challenging yourself to give something up during this period, why not donate the cost of what you save towards The Trussell Trust?

At the end of Lent, bank the money you’ve raised and donate it below or send a cheque (made payable to The Trussell Trust and write ‘Lent’ on the reverse) together with this Gift Aid Form to: Freepost Plus RTGG-AUTH-KUGH, The Trussell Trust, Unit 9 Ashfield Trading Estate, Salisbury SP2 7HL.

Don’t forget to join in with the conversation on social media and let us know if you’ll be taking part in #40for40.

Adlent – Reverse advent calendar for Lent

During spring, many foodbanks struggle with low food stocks, yet the need for emergency food to support people in crisis remains.

You can help food stocks last well into the summer by taking part in Adlent, a great way to help over the period of Lent. Simply download the Adlent Calendar and collect or donate one item of food for each of the forty days of Lent, starting on Ash Wednesday 14th February and finishing on Thursday 29th March.

You can take part as an individual, community group, at work or at school.

Donations made to foodbanks in our network are used to provide three days of emergency food to local people, facing hunger, making a huge difference to their lives.

Please contact your local foodbank, in advance to arrange delivery of your donations. Click here to find your nearest foodbank.

Don’t forget to join in with the conversation on social media, we’d love to hear from you and see what you get up to. #Adlentcalendar
