Catherine's run for church funds

The Silverstone Half Marathon – Fundraising Update

I just wanted to let everyone know that I successfully completed the Silverstone half marathon on Sunday 3rd March in a time of 1 hour and 55 minutes. It was a great day. My support team (Mum and Dad) came to cheer me on and they managed to see me 4 or 5 times around the 13.1 mile course.

Through sponsorship for the event I have raised £336 for the church and hopefully Gift Aid will be claimed back on a good proportion of that. A big THANK YOU to everyone who has supported me and sponsored me.

Another great outcome of the event is that the church is now registered with an online donations website. It’s called My Donate and is a not-for-profit service run by BT. This means that anyone can now set up a fundraising page for the church through My Donate. It’s a great way of collecting sponsorship and the My Donate team will even claim back any Gift Aid the church is eligible for. I would be more than happy to help anyone set up a page, now or in the future.

With best wishes,

Catherine Weaver

... and we all want to say a big thank you and very well done to Catherine for her great effort! (Fr Paul)
