Sister Rita to the Rescue

Sister Rita returns to transform the lives of more residents of one of the poorest parts of the UK. In the first of the series, Sister Rita's plans to create a community allotment to supply fresh produce for the food bank are threatened when she can't find enough volunteers to muck in. And, as the nun and her team deliver help to whoever needs it most, they are overwhelmed by some unexpected displays of generosity. She also calls on Manchester City Football Club, when she meets a woman who urgently needs new furniture, and a woman struggling with benefits gets a fresh start.

Genre: Documentary
