Charity plea

FILEY residents are being encouraged to give something up for Lent - and help a charity in the process.

Macmillan Cancer Support is hoping people will get sponsored for a variety of activities to boost funds.

Fundraising manager Sally Millington said: “Giving up something for Lent can be extremely difficult, but is also very rewarding when you realise you’ve lasted 40 days.”

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, March 9, and for more information contact (1904) 756404.
