This year our Lenten Charity is The Philippine Community Fund protecting children and families. Their mission is to permanently improve the quality of life for the poorest Filipino communities, through education, nutrition, health, medical and family enhancement programmes, regardless of religion, race or political boundaries.
Besides alms-giving we can all get involved by collecting ring-pulls from drinks cans and crisp packets which we will be sent to the Philippines to make into bags and purses.
