Diocesan Lent Appeal 2019

Posted on Monday 4 February 2019
In 2019, the Diocese of Ely and Christian Aid are delighted to be working together on a joint Lent Appeal.

The appeal is in support of the project "Breaking the Barriers: Business Opportunities Through Sustainable Energy Projects for Women in Rural Malawi, Ethiopia, Burkina Faso and Honduras".

You and your parish are able to contribute to this appeal via the dedicated JustGiving page here -

Remember, thanks to funding from the European Union, every £1 you donate this Lent will be worth £5...

  • Your £16 multiplied to £80 can give five women solar lamps for their homes, helping their children do their homework.
  • Your £75 multiplied to £375 can train five groups of women in using solar power to grow their businesses.
  • Your £450 multiplied to £2,250 can train 50 women in skills to help them power ahead with their own businesses.
