How Good At Lent Are You?

In case you’ve not noticed. Its Pancake day today, therefore tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent.

What are you giving up?

Use our below tick list for inspiration, and give yourself a tick for each item you’re giving up:

Chocolate  |        |
Beer / Alcohol  |        |
Crisps  |        |

Your Computer / Playstation (Two Points)  |        |
Smart Phone (2 points)  |        |
Your house / flat (Worth Three Points)  |        |


Got one tick: You’re doing alright.

Two – Seven Ticks: You’re doing well. Keep it up!

Seven or more: You are indeed a saint!

    We’re putting £1 in a box for each meal eaten in Lent, a thank-offering for having food to eat – and will give £120 to Trussell Trust who provide food for the desperate.
