Below are the words of a young Missio supporter. Missio is the parent charity of Mission Together and is active in parishes and secondary schools across the UK. We are grateful to all adults – teachers, parents, or priests – who encourage children to be missionaries of God’s love through sharing and prayer.
‘My name is Violet Nicklin (pictured bottom row, centre) and Father Tony gave me a red MISSIO box to collect money for people across the world who have very little. Every time we tidied the house any change we found went in our box. When I gave the box to Father Tony he counted it and we had raised £6.63 which was sent to Missio in London. We are starting box two. My Nan has given up cakes and biscuits for Lent and money that would have bought cakes is going in my red box, and my Nan does like her cakes!’
