When the Justice and Peace group at Sacred Heart Leighton buzzard heard about the Power to Be campaign, they wanted to promote it in their parish and beyond.
Andrew Selous MP joins in the Speak Up Week of Action in Leighton Buzzard
With the support of the parish priest Fr John Danford, the group organised a walk during the week of action where they invited their MP Andrew Selous to attend and to let him know what mattered to them.
Thereafter, they organised a card signing petition to call on the World Bank to ensure renewable energy access for the world’s poorest people

Fr John Danford promoting Power to Be
But they didn’t stop there. In order to make a bigger impact, Fr John cut out some “sun rays” and asked parishioners to write messages on them.
It could be to the World Bank, a promise to save energy or a prayer. With his usual flare, Fr John designed a very innovative “Power to Be sun” which he was very proud of. It now hangs for all to see. What artistic talent especially with the solar panel sunglasses!
A really wonderful support and example of solidarity with our brothers and sisters living in poverty! Thank you Sacred Heart Leighton Buzzard.
