Give a tent for Lent

On our chillier camping trips, as we wrap ourselves in our many layers, hug our hot water bottles and snuggle into our warm sleeping bags, we often think about people who are sleeping in tents every night, not by choice, but because there is no other option. We generally conclude that much as we love camping with all our accessories, we’d make pretty rubbish refugees!

In light of those conversations, this charity appeal caught our eye: Give a tent for Lent .

Particularly in the lead up to Easter, we are aware that we have been blessed with so much – so it seemed a fitting thing to do to help provide a tempory home for a family who find themselves needing to live in a tent!

Hello from a field

Camping season has begun!!We are currently enjoying coffee & cake by a fire to take off the chill in the air.

The we managed to get the tent up before the rain, and it stopped to enable us to go for a walk & cook dinner on the fire last night. However everything is muddy! Good job we packed our wellies!!

It wasn’t too cold overnight…especially if you have double thermals on, carpets & down sleeping bags.

Last time we camped at Pit Hill we brought the spaceship & camped light using Betty’s boot as our kitchen. This time we brought Alice & camped in style!

More about who Alice is another time…
