What are you giving up for Lent?

Fantastic resources to engage your church in praying, giving and acting for vulnerable young people this Lent are now available.

BenevoLent has ended this year but you can still support our work - find out how today.


Lent begins on Wednesday. Are you giving up anything?

Last year, people who used our BenevoLent tool - try this year's version - gave up the following things:

Given up for Lent Percentage
Treats 32
Coffee 20
Alcohol 14
Takeaways 7
Clothes shopping 7
Fizzy drinks 7
Lazy lunches 6
Cigarettes 2
Snacks 2
Something else 3

What are you giving up this year?

Are you giving up chocoloate for Lent? Fizzy drinks? Something else?

If you are, try our BenevoLent tool - it's a really useful way to see how giving up coffee, clothes, crisps or whatever you'd like can have an effect on your savings and by helping children's lives.

Give BenevoLent a try.
