WALK TO HAITI FOR CHRISTIAN AID WEEK

The sun shone brightly on Saturday 12 May as 42 people from the churches in Ainsdale walked 10km each for Christian Aid’s ‘Walk to Haiti’ appeal.

We began the day with a hearty Big Brekkie and a short prayer by Revd Peter Lythe from the Village Church before setting off on our walk. The weather stayed warm and dry as we enjoyed the beautiful pine forests, dunes and beach that surround this part of the North West.

Those that stayed behind kept busy by selling Big Brekkies and homemade cakes to everyone.

At the time of writing it is too early to predict how much money has been raised but we know it will be in excess of £1000 in sponsorship and the food sales raised over £350.

A fantastic achievement and, all walkers returned safely!

Our special thanks to the following local businesses that generously provided food to support the Big Brekkie event that helped to spur the walkers on:

  • Co-operative
  • Graysons
  • Tesco
  • Waterfields

And also to all the wonderful volunteers who helped out in the kitchen – preparing, cooking, serving, washing up and to those who baked and sold cakes and those who set up.

Here are a few photographs to keep as good memories.
