He's been raising money for some charities close to his head, as well as supporting his physical and mental health through exercise and a dose of the great outdoors. It's also been a chance for David to connect with his Scottish heritage and visit the land of his ancestors.

If you’d like to support the ministry of the parishes David serves, you can donate to them directly: Lydney Parish and Woolaston with Alvington and Aylburton Parish.
