Support Jars of Change this Lent and turn your small change into safe water.
Our Lent Appeal this year in our Benefice of St Ippolyts with Great and Little Wymondley will be for the charity Water Aid. See www.wateraid.org/uk/lent for more details and to watch a video about their work and Lent Appeal.
Water Aid asks us - could you go without safe water for 40 days? No one should have to go without safe clean water. This year will you donate the money you save by giving something up for Lent to help bring safe, clean water to communities around the world?
Try swapping tea, coffee or soft drinks or beer for the clean tap water we have in the UK. Collect the money you save in a jar and bring it on Sunday 19th to St Ippolyts Church or Sunday 12th to Great Wymondley church, both services will be at 9.30am, You could have a different jar for each member of the family and see who raises the most!
