Sponsored night walking to Newcastle

16 Jun 2021, midnight

In the first week of July I'm walking 60 odd miles to Newcastle and hoping to raise funds for two causes:

1. Our Brampton Deanery Network Youth Church (see picture above)

2. Farlam Parish Church (we're raising money to re-carpet the church).

The walk is from St Thomas a Becket's Farlam to St Thomas the Martyr's in Newcastle City Centre. I will do much of it by night, following the River Tyne. I am looking to finish the walk on 7th July, one of the two days St Thomas a Becket has in the calendar. Last year was the 850th anniversary of his martyrdom.

Sponsorship forms will be found at the back of our churches. Or donations can be made online. This can be done for the youth work on:

And / or for the re-carpeting of Farlam Church on:

Any support is much appreciated! I’ll let everyone know how I get on!
