Julian gets on his bike to raise funds for YMCA Norfolk 

Norfolk Christian Aid Co-ordinator and business and life coach Julian Bryant is set to cycle 100 miles as part of the Tour de Norfolk bike ride to raise money for YMCA Norfolk’s mental health work in local schools and celebrate losing six stones over the past seven months.

Julian said: “Young people in our schools often face a lot of pressure and find school life challenging. Many of you will know this through personal knowledge and you will also know how close this is to our hearts.
“I looked at the different services and was shocked at poorly resourced many of them are. There could be so much more long term support offered for children at school with mental health problems. The YMCA, however, provides training to teachers, volunteers, peer mentors and also provides counselling, support and so much more.
“After losing six stones and getting fitter over the last seven months I feel able to do a personal challenge to make a difference. On September 17 I am going to cycle 100 miles and hope you will sponsor me.”

Do you appreciate our service and stories?

The Network Norwich & Norfolk website has been published for over 13 years now and we have an established team of professional journalists covering the activities, organisations and churches which make up the county’s Christian community. Our whole purpose is to support that community by daily providing accurate, unbiased stories and features.

To pay for that service, we rely on our partner organisations, advertisers and readers to, in turn, support us financially. We want to keep the website free for everyone to access and continue to be able to pay for writers to produce the content you can enjoy every day.

We would like to ask you to consider supporting our work and suggest you might want to make a small regular donation of just £1 a week and become one of our 100 Friends, or a larger one-off or annual amount.

Because we are part of a registered charity we can reclaim Gift Aid on your donations if you are a tax-payer.
