A message from Reverend Sara-Jane:
I am cycling the South Downs Way – yes, all of it (in 5 sections), in aid of the restoration and building works that start at St Mary’s Thakeham in September. My challenge starts Thursday 23 July in Winchester, and continues over the following 5 weeks. You can follow my progress on the website www.stmarysthakeham.org The ride is approx 104 miles, and includes around 4,000m of ascent. This is not only a huge physical challenge, but an enormous mental one for me too.
We have raised over half the funds needed to complete all the planned works, but have had to fund £200,000 of unforeseen, essential stonework, and factor in rising costs too. Would you please consider sponsoring me? I recognise and understand that not everyone will be able to contribute at this difficult time – but everyone can wish us well. So, whether you click the link below and make a donation, or wish me well, or say a prayer for the fundraising effort, I am very, very grateful for your support.
