We are travelling to Bethlehem in time for the Nativity.
Would you like to join us on the 3,123-mile journey from Ebrington to Bethlehem?
STOP PRESS:We have made it, all the way to Bethlehem - and back again - 6,246 miles - WELL DONE EBRINGTON !
We would like as many people as possible to record the miles they walk, run, or cycle weekly from 1st November until Christmas! You can be walking your dog, pottering in the garden, running, cycling, riding a pony or donkey (!), whatever means you have available, and record your mileage over the weeks until Christmas.
idea is that you could get sponsors, or be prepared to sponsor someone “making
the journey” to raise funds which will be split evenly between St Eadburgha’s,
your village church and the North Cotswold Food Bank at Guiting Power.
Poverty is often hidden in rural areas and the number of families using food banks has risen further this year due to the impact of Corona Virus. Covid-19 has also had a very significant impact on the income of St Eadburgha’s. Without services, weddings and regular fund-raising events, income is down by some £8,000 resulting in a deficit. The church has been here for the community for hundreds of years and we want to ensure it continues to serve future generations.
Record your weekly mileage and tell Stan so that she can collate all the miles travelled. The weekly mileage will be plotted on a large map in the church, on the church web-site and on the village noticeboards. Couples and families can “travel together” thereby multiplying the miles travelled!
You can also follow this link to St Eadburgha’s donation page where you will be able to pay directly to the church or via PayPal.
Thank you so much, your support is very greatly appreciated.
