Revd Anne’s Sabbatical

In May I will be doing a little walk with Gisela our friend from St. Paul’s.

We will be walking from our parishes to Holy Island via the Pennine Way and St. Cuthbert’s Way. This is around 320 miles and we’re taking nearly the whole month to do it, finishing with a boat trip to Inner Farne where St. Cuthbert died.

You can see the route and our timetable below.

We have decided to do this as a sponsored walk. For my part I will be raising money for our Church Hall Roof at Christ Church and for the work of Christie hospital. I have chosen The Christie so that I can be part of the fundraising work Joanne Taylor is involved in. Joanne’s husband Jeff works for Bullen Conservation and Jeff has managed work on site at Christ Church for the past three years, and is a familiar face to many of us. If you want to know about Joanne’s fundraising and hear her story, you can visit the website, and donate via her Just Giving Page. Details are as follows….

There will also be opportunity to donate direct to Anne.

Many thanks for all your support.
