6 Days. 83 Stops. 350 Miles. Bishop David will be cycling round the diocese in March to raise funds for the Down and Dromore Lent Appeal. This will be supporting two projects in partnership with Bishops’ Appeal, Christian Aid and Tearfund.
The Christian Aid project is in Honduras, working with their local partner organisation in eight communities that are particularly vulnerable to climate change. The Tearfund project is in Jordan, helping mobilise the Anglican church there to work amongst Jordan’s poorest communities.
The dates for the cycle are 4,7,11,14,16 and 21 March and the bishop looks forward to meeting some parishioners and clergy at each stop. Please note that time will not allow the cyclists to visit every church building.
Please listen out in your parish for ways to give, and if you would like to give as an individual during Lent, please indicate that you are giving to the Down and Dromore Lent Appeal.
