A combination of harsh weather and a spate of lead thefts has caused severe damage to the church roof in Monk Fryston. The substantial repair bill will need to be met from a number of sources, of which around half will come from fund raising within the community.
Monk Fryston's Cycling Club have decided to do our bit to support fundraising.
We hope that by cycling 150 miles from the Irish Sea at Whitehaven to the North Sea in Sunderland, climbing over 4500 metres across the Pennines we can convince one or two people to donate some money to support St Wilfrid’s. We have done it before but this time rather than taking two days, we aim to complete the route in a day!
So the date has been set for Saturday July 13th. Those of us crazy enough to undertake this madcap adventure are already in training and thinking of ways to alleviate the hours of pain in the saddle. Help us get through it by donating safely using the paypal button below.
