 24 Hour Famine Begins...

Photo: The YNU  group gather on the bridge to start collecting their waterAt 1pm on the dot today, the youngsters from Shefford YNU Youth Group gathered on the river bridge in North Bridge Street to start their 24 hour famine in aid of World Vision.

One child dies every 15 seconds through lack of clean drinking water and basic sanitation. That's not a one-off disaster - it happens every single day with crushing monotony.

This is the challenge that the YNU group have risen to - helping World Vision in their quest to ensure that everyone has access to clean drinking water and basic sanitation as a matter of right. Wherever they live.

Most of the rest of the afternoon will be spent at St Michael's Church where they will be building a 'coin river' out of donated coins.
