On the 8th July 2013, Harvey Lodge will be setting out on a solo expedition to walk the entire South West Coast Path – a distance of 630 miles. Starting at Minehead and finishing in Poole, he is aiming to complete the challenge within 8 weeks.
He is hoping to raise as much money as possible for Cancer Research UK and WaterAid with your help. The walk will entirely be self funded with all money raised going directly and evenly to the two charities.
The Evangelical Alliance together with Care for the Family and the Churches Child Protection Advisory have been working together to respond to the huge challenge presented by increasing numbers of children coming into care. The Home for Good initiative has been launched after extensive consultation with National Fostering and Adoption agencies and the government.
There is an information evening planned by Somerset County Council on Thurs July 11th at the Holiday Inn, Taunton at 7 pm. Krish Kandiah from the Home for Good campaign will be speaking.
It is right that the churches should be at the forefront of responding to this challenge. If one foster/adoptive family came from every church in the country then the existing short fall would easily be solved.
Please see the leaflet at the back of church for more details.
We are looking forward to the Midsummer Concert on Sunday 7th July at 7.30pm.
