Our curate, Martin Gordon, completed the Bristol Half Marathon last weekend. Thanks to the generous support of his friends and family, he raised almost £5,000 for the Heart of the Community project.
Donations of nearly £2000 were made using Martin’s online giving page (it’s not too late to donate). Automatic Gift Aid contributions increased that total by another 20% and a very generous supporter agreed to match all the other donations made.
Martin completed the 13 mile course in 1 hour 38 minutes on his birthday, and was back in church to lead the evening service a few hours later.
He sends his thanks to all those who sponsored him for the Heart of the Community project.
