Nick walks 300,000 steps for Christian Aid Week
Rev Nick Garrard is walking 300,000 steps in May to raise money for Christian Aid, and help communities impacted by climate change.
Julian Bryant, Christian Aid’s Church Engagement Officer for Norfolk, explains: “This devastating climate crisis robs people of the water and food they need to live. They tell us that at times it even robs them of their children. That’s why it is so important that we, as the Church and individuals in the UK, make a difference to our global neighbours.”
You can sponsor Nick via his Facebook fundraising page here.
Alongside this challenge, Wells next the Sea group has organised a Sunrise to Sunset sponsored walk on Tuesday May 11 along the North Norfolk Coastal Path. You can support them here.
And meanwhile, Norwich Cathedral is holding an innovative quiz trail in the evening of Monday 17 May. Tickets must be booked in advance and are on this link.
Julian continues: “Other churches and groups are making and selling cookery books, setting up JustGiving pages, using our e-envelope, running tabletop and plant sales and so much more. Some are simply giving via our website. I am so inspired that even in this year, they realise that their fundraising and campaigning is needed so much more for our brothers and sisters in this crisis.”
