THANK YOU TO ALL WHO SPONSORED US as we walked to Jerusalem. We arrived a couple of days before Pentecost which allowed us to enjoy the da!

The distance covered was <span style="font-size: 1rem; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;">4,696 km or for those of us who prefer 2,918 mile. This translates into approximately 6,653,040 steps. </span>

The main aim however was to try and raise some funds for the parishes within the group who over the last year have not been able to hold services, weddings or funeral which all normally produce an income. The churches which are beautiful, historic buildings and often prominent within the communities that they are placed continue to require maintenance. This is essential as restrictions lift they are to be there, available once again for people to use.

WE ARE AWAITING THE FINAL TALLY AND THEN WILL LET YOU KNOW HOW MUCH WAS RAISED.
