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.
21st-26th March - Serve (Love) Everyone
-Think of an everyday item that’s in good condition. Find a recipient and give it away. Umbrellas, hand cream, etc.
-Drop a small card to a hidden hero, just to let them know they’re noticed.
-Contact a homeless shelter and ask what they need. Then meet it.
-Allow extra time when you are out and about and look for simple ways to be generous – help someone carry a heavy bag, offer directions, acknowledge passers-by.
-Set a target to encourage everyone you talk with today. Everyone. This might actually be easier than you think – choose to prioritise encouraging words whenever you speak to others and it will come naturally.
-The next time you get on a bus or go shopping – take something for the person serving you
– some flowers, a bar of chocolate. Tell them what a great job they are doing.

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!
