On your bike for Chrysostom’s!

Stopping for lunch with friends at St Peter's Church Hall, Oughtrington

Parish Assistants Oliver and Penny can now celebrate, with Miriam, Tracy Charnock, Kayon, and Reynhard having completed their sponsored cycle ride from St Chrysostom’s to St Peter’s Church in Outrington, a return journey of roughly 36 miles!

Penny writes:

“After a wonderful send off by the children of St Chrysostom’s Primary School, with a countdown and cheers from the Reception children, we were on our way, on a beautiful day-  sunshine all the way with a gentle breeze. Cycling together, Reynhard kept us entertained with songs for each part of the journey, Tracy kept us on track, sweets were shared for energy, along with support and encouragement for each other.

Our friends at St Peter’s Church, Oughtrington gave us a warm welcome, tea and cakes as we stopped for lunch. After a final cup of tea ‘for the road’ we were back along our way. It was a lovely day together. So far we have raised over £450. We’re hoping to make it over £500 once all pledges are received.”

Kayon, a volunteer at church says “on the way there it was enjoyable, fun and exciting – it was good to meet people and get along with them.”

A triumphant return home!
