Walk, walk, walk!

Saturday June 15th sees the day of our sponsored assault on the 3-Peak area of the Yorkshire Dales. After all the training comes the real thing! Burj and some others are aiming to do all three, Some are aiming at two, Rev Steve is aiming at one and hopefully has some support to help him over it, and those who are perhaps a “little over the hill” or are a bit too small for the Peaks are doing a shorter walk in the valley along with providing transport, support, food and water.

There are two main aims for this day, though I am sure some people may have more! The first is to have a lot of fun and fellowship together in beautiful surroundings. The second is to raise some money to help towards the repair of the roof.

All Hallows has a beautiful roof inside but sadly, the roof outside is not so good. Initially we need to replace the gulleys which are not deep enough to cope with the heavy rains that we have had in the last few years but they also leak, thus the frequent use of buckets around the church. Eventually we want to replace the whole roof and insulate the roof at the same time. This will cost considerably more and we are currently working on how we will raise this money.

So, if you would like to help us at All Hallows’ raise money to repair and then replace the roof do please sponsor our walk (click on the boots on the left) or give a donation (click on the drip on the left). You can sponsor us online or download, print out and use the sponsor form.

Fabulous Feet!

In a previous post we introduced Burj’s Boots but it’s not just Burj who is going to walk. Lots of other feet are going to take part in walking to raise funds for our roof. They may not all be aiming to do the Yorkshire Three Peaks, some are aiming at two Peaks, some at one, and some of the youngest and oldest members are looking at a walk along the river at Horton-in-Ribblesdale whilst the “big walks” are happening.

This is all getting rather exciting! We are looking forwards to three Saturdays over the next few months when we will be limbering up our legs, wearing in our wellies and smelling our socks to make sure that we can put our best feet forwards! A reminder of the proposed walks:

  • Saturday 23rd March – a walk from All Hallows’ to Thwaite Mills along the canal and back passing the Royal Armories …. and Hannah and Burj’s home. The walk will start at 10:15am.
  • Saturday 13th April – a walk from Marsden in the Pennines
  • Saturday 25th May – a walk in the Dales
  • Saturday 15th June – The Three Peaks, Two Peaks, One Peak and River Walk!

Further details to follow. Meanwhile, of all the footwear that appears in the animated picture, can you spot:

  • your feet?
  • feet (and shoes) that have already done the Three Peaks?
