The Bishop of Taun­ton, the Rt Rev Peter Mau­rice, is fast­ing ev­ery Wed­nes­day through­out Lent as part of the na­tional grass­roots cam­paign, End Hunger Fast to ad­dress hunger in the UK. He joins 40 high-pro­file faith lead­ers, celebri­ties and food bank vol­un­teers who are tak­ing part in a fast over the Lent pe­riod. He says: “The num­ber of people need­ing food aid is still ris­ing. This is an op­por­tu­nity to show sol­i­dar­ity with the thou­sands go­ing hun­gry in Bri­tain to­day. I pledge to fast ev­ery Wed­nes­day be­tween now and Easter, and I urge oth­ers to con­sider show­ing their sup­port too, by tak­ing part in a na­tion-wide day of fast­ing on 4 April.”
