In common with many of our churches throughout the diocese, The Church of the Immaculate Conception, Portswood (Southampton) host Lenten Lunches for charity. There is a chosen recipient for each of the Fridays. Parishioners and friends were joined by some of our Prep pupils. They came with donations from their pocket money, ready to enjoy a choice of six soups, a variety of breads, a good drink and engaging company. One remarked ‘I wish this was for every Friday’. It did however bring home the stark and sad fact that in many parts of the world this would be the one meal of the day and for most days of the year.
