You may like to pick one suggestion each week or try to complete them all it’s completely up to you we just encourage you to ACT.
11th-16th April - Serve (Love) Everyone
-Grab a stack of Post-it notes and write down some one-line encouragements. Then stick them up around your house, your gym, or your workplace for other people to find.
-Offer to do the tea/coffee run at work or wash up everyone’s mugs at the end of the day. Say ‘yes’ to that difficult task announced at a meeting. You get the idea… run with it!
-Leave some coins taped to a car park/ vending machine or on a supermarket trolley for the next person to use.
-Eat plain rice for each of your meals today - rice is the staple diet of over 3 billion people.
-Write a letter to someone facing persecution – find out how at

-Make a collection for your local foodbank.

“The Queen has served her country and Commonwealth for 70 years. To honour her, let’s join together in 70 Acts of Service during 2022. We’ve loads of ideas to help you to get your village, town or city involved.”
We’ve grouped together suggestions of ways to serve for each week in lent from the Platinum Jubilee Website
Perhaps during Lent we can make a dint into the suggested 70 acts of service before the Jubilee in June!
