Christian Aid bike ride

Rev'd Kim Stilwell, wife Stella and friends Roger Rolton and Mark Thompson recently headed for the coast the hard way on a sponsored bike ride for Christian Aid.

The ride, which was fuelled by copious quantities of cake and Jelly Babies en route, took place on 11th and 12th July and included a stopover in Barmouth — a well-deserved break after crossing the pass at Dinas Mawddy near Dolgellau.

Blessed with good weather and the enjoyment of God's beautiful creation, on the second day after crossing the Menai bridge, the trio were relieved to arrive in Holyhead with 20 minutes to spare to catch the train back to Ludlow, arriving close to midnight.

Thanks to generous sponsors, the fantastic sum of around £1500 was raised.
