Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
From 1st of July 2019 to 15th July 2019 I shall be walking 150 miles to celebrate the 150th anniversary of All Saint's, Hollybush and to try to raise some money to put towards installing toilet facilities at the Church. This is the Church where my maternal grandparents and great grandparents are buried, where I was baptised, and where I minister as Associate Priest, so it is a very special and sacred place for me and my family, as it is to many other families.
My walk will start from All Saint's Hollybush, head along the Malvern Hills to Storridge, then up to Bromyard and on to Leominster. Just past Leominster I will visit All Saint's Monkland, where my paternal grandparents are buried, and then head to Hay-on-Wye via Kington. Then its up and over Hay Bluff to get to the very tiny but gorgeous church of St Mary the Virgin at Capl-y-ffin where my great uncle Clarence is buried. From then on its the home straight - from Capel-y-ffin to Monmouth, then Ross, Upton Bishop, Dymock and Bromsberrow, and, finally back to journeys end at All Saints Hollybush.
Its part pilgrimage, part visiting the ancestors and a major physical challenge for me, ably aided and abetted by husband Mike who will be my roadie for the trip. My aim is to publicise the 150th anniversary of the little Church on the Common and to raise money to put towards installing toilet facilities, to that the next 150 years will be even better than the last.
