MP David Blunkett joins in the Cathedral Archer Project’s Lent Appeal to help make a difference to the lives of homeless people in Sheffield.
David Blunkett, former Home and Education Secretary and current MP for Sheffield Brightside & Hillsborough, is taking on a very special challenge this Lent. He has decided to give up pudding for 40 days and is donating the cost to the Cathedral Archer Project to help homeless people in Sheffield.
MP David Blunkett comments 'I am pleased about taking on this challenge and raising money for a worthy cause that is making a real difference in my local community. If those who are in a position to do so can give something up this Lent we can make a huge difference to the lives of people who have very little'.
Lent runs from February 18th to April 2nd and we are encouraging as many people as possible to join our appeal. Please encourage your friends, colleagues, workplace, church and school to get involved. The money you donate from giving something up will mean that the homeless people we work with will be able to have a hot breakfast, a warm, safe place to go, and simply, someone to talk to.
So please join us this Lent.
Give up and change a life.
