Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I have always been fascinated by the numerous abbeys in Yorkshire  lying in ruins, throughout the county . Some are celebrated and some almost forgotten. The legacy of these centres of Christian learning , worship and hospitality is quite astonishing and largely ignored today.

Having been given a Victorian book about all the abbeys of Yorkshire, I decided it was time to visit them, to learn about them and to wonder at the prayerful legacy their occupants  created. If visiting them , why not at a pace to take them in ... by bike. And if by bike, why not as a fundraiser for an amazing charity based locally which offers the same Christian hospitality and transformation of lives offered by the monasteries so long ago . Mercy ministries is  right up my street emotionally , spiritually and almost geographically . In my time as a gynaecologist I have seen too many women with  deep emotional injuries . Mercy ministries reaches out to such women and provides a safe place for reflection , love and spiritual care . It is a life transforming charity for the women fortunate enough to be cared for . 

So please support Mercy Ministries via this page .  Thank you for reading and thank you for support
