The group have recently given a petition to parliament asking for a free lunch programme in all schools regardless of decile.

Lent Explained in 10 Seconds

Lent and Letters: here's a 10-second read on what Lent is and what Joy Ravela is doing for Lent.

Lent is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday (this year it's the 14th Feb) and ends on Holy Saturday.

The forty days represents the time Jesus spent in the wilderness, enduring the temptation of Satan and preparing to begin his ministry.

It's a time of repentance, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter.

It is a time of self-examination and reflection.

Often Christians choose to give up something or to volunteer and give of themselves for others as a way of focussing on their relationship with God.

Sundays in Lent are not counted in the forty days because each Sunday represents a "mini-Easter" and the reverent spirit of Lent is tempered with joyful anticipation of the Resurrection.

Lent comes from the Anglo Saxon word lencten, which means "spring."

Hopefully that clears up the mystery of what Lent is.

Joy Ravela chatted with Nerida about the unusual but inspiring thing she's doing for lent.
