Sponsored Walk

by Bill Rowell

Before the clocks go back I am intending to walk between as many as possible of the churches of the deanery. I’ll keep a note of my total mileage, and photograph each church I visit – frankly, I’ve no idea how well I’ll do, but I’d love you to sponsor my attempt!
This is the deanery in which Thomas Bray was born and baptised – the founder, over three hundred years ago, of the mission society USPG (for whom I used to work). So half the money I raise will go to USPG, and the other half to whatever church or group of churches you wish as my sponsor. If you would like to sponsor me, please complete the sponsor form from the link below. I’ll be walking whenever I can fit it in between 20th September and 23rd October, with a last walk on 24th October, which, all being well, will be from Shelve, via The Marsh and Middleton, to Chirbury.
Completed sponsor forms can be sent to me at 17 Croft Road, Welshpool, Powys SY21 7QD, or emailed to wkrowell@btinternet.com. I haven’t yet set up an on-line giving page, but when I do I’ll pass details round!
Thanks! – Rev Bill Rowell, Rural Dean.
