Church of England Diocese of Lichfield Stafford St Bertelin

Team St Bertelin's do it again...

23 Mar 2019, 11 p.m.

In what is now an annual event, people from St Bertelin's Stafford joined many others on the North Staffs Christian Aid Walk at Tittesworth Reservoir today.

On a day which was described as a "perfect day for a walk", Steve, Jackie, Bridget and Revd Elaine helped organisers to raise over £1 million for Christian Aid since the walk began 29 years ago. 

Steve set off at a cracking pace, and ran around the perimeter of Tittesworth Reservoir, fulfilling a goal he had set himself a few years ago. Bridget did the same, but at walking pace. Revd Elaine nordic-walked (with poles) the shorter course of between 1.5 and 2 miles (depending if you believe the course organiser's estimate, or Severn Trent Water's estimate...) and Jackie walked the shorter course but at a slower pace...although Jackie is very fit, a very close encounter with a delivery van last week has left her very bruised and sore, so a leisurely walk was just what the doctor ordered. 

Jackie's mom Margaret was waiting in the tea room at the Visitor Centre to cheer us back!

Go Team St Bertelin's!
