Three Crosses Challenge

The Three Crosses Challenge is a fundraising effort by a team of church members raising money for the church building project. They are aiming to walk 50 miles in 24 hours! They have attracted a number of sponsors but there is still time for you to give, there are sponsorship forms at the back of the church or you can send cheques to church payable to ‘St Marks New Building Fund’.

The walkers are setting off from church on Saturday 15th March at 10.30 am. Below is a list of places they will be stopping. Why not meet them on the road to offer encouragement?
