They left us with the thought that Lent is not a time to show everyone how good we are at giving up chocolate, but rather a time for preparing ourselves and for doing good for others.
The final thought :-
How will you prepare yourself during Lent?
How will doing it change you?
We have decided to collect money in a jar for charity.
This will be a charity of the children's choice.
Any small change will be greatly appreciated.
