Norfolk church attempts epic journey for charity
A group of people from Hope Church in Diss are aiming to travel the distance from John o'Groats to Land’s End and back again to raise money for Christian homeless charity Hope into Action.
Matt Naulls and 26 others associated with the church or charity, aim to collectively run, walk or cycle the total distance, which is 1,748 miles, based at their own homes during lockdown, from May 1 to 15.
Matt said: “We are doing this to help raise money for Hope into Action - a Christian charity which helps the homeless and those in need. It helps provide people with shelter and also food. They also aim to help these people with their education and a start into a stable life.”
People who are taking part in making a difference are: Matt & Sophie Naulls, Arron White, Andy, Helen, Faith & Emma Taylor, Ben Rush, David, Lou, Saul & Leighton, Gareth Newberry
Graham & Michele Blake, Joey, Pippa, Grace, Christian & Micah, John & George Bingham, Joseph & Ollie Boardman, Peter Clarke, Stacey & Abi Payne, Toby Naulls, Louise Walkington, Sam Dempsey, Stacey Coombes, Bar Roden, Tim & Michelle Clarke, Helen Wilby, Dan Knight and Steve Bartrum.
A donation of just £5 can help put a roof over one person and provide them with food. £40 provides an individual with accommodation, food and education. The group are aiming to raise £2,000 and are already well on their way.
