Lent Project

Churches often work together during Lent to support the most vulnerable. As we reflect again on all that Jesus did for us and prepare ourselves to commemorate his death and resurrection, we look for ways to care for those in the greatest need.

This year through Lent, as well as praying for our work, we are asking churches to consider supporting Alabaré financially by raising money for three specific projects:

  • £250 would provide a pack for young people leaving our care, including pots and pans, sheets, a cushion, and an element of support
  • £600 would provide a welcome pack for veterans coming into our care, including everything from the mug to the mattress, which they can take with them when they leave us
  • £1,000 would provide a much-needed refurbishment pack for our homeless shelter in Salisbury, including new flooring and re-decorating
