Our Comms and Fundraising Officer invited her friends over for a Poverty Sunday frugal lunch on a Tuesday evening!
As Sunday's tend to be quite busy for her she decided to hold it mid- week. The meal helped to raise awareness of the issues of poverty in England and to raise funds for the work of Church Urban Fund in some of the most deprived communities.
The Poverty Sunday placemats were a great talking point as her friends reflected on the multifaceted nature of poverty. One friend was excited to find her favourite verse “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.” Proverbs 31: 8-9
For her frugal meal she opted for a simple lentil soup which was still hearty enough to leave everyone feeling full.
