All Things Electric - Giving up Petrol for Lent
Father David cuts out petrol this Lent in electric car challenge.
Fr David Osborne, Parish priest of Cranleigh and Bramley ‘jump started’ at the opportunity to swap his petrol guzzler for an electric car as part of our cut it out Lent appeal.
Donate to CAFOD’s Lent appeal and UK Government will match whatever you give £1 for £1.
What are you cutting out for Lent?
Fr David cut out petrol and plugged in the Nissan’s LEAF Acenta 6kw electric car this month, to test whether he and the Surrey roads are ready for the more eco-friendly way of serving his parish.
Parishioners are used to CAFOD Family Fast Day cutting out a meal for Lent in solidarity with the poorest communities. Cutting out fuel is not so normal but can have a global impact.
Donate to our Lent Appeal today and double your impact: http://www.cafod.org.uk/give/lent
