Lent is a time period between Ash Wednesday (10th February) and 24th March where people tend to give up something they enjoy (chocolate, wine, etc) in order to symbolize the days which led up to Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection, where he spent 40 days and 40 nights alone in the desert without life's simple pleasures. However, we're joining over 85,000 people who will be taking part in a campaign created by the charity Stewardship called 40 Acts. For each of the 40 days of Lent, the charity are suggesting positive, generous and kind acts that you can perform to make a difference to your community, you can read more about each one on their website. Watch their promotional video below for more information, inspiration and motivation to get started.
