Together Canterbury officer, Keith Berry, along with former Canterbury Diocesan Secretary David Kemp, will be undertaking a Poverty Pilgrimage by bike from Tuesday 9th June to Friday 12th June.
Keith and David are raising funds for Church Urban Fund in the run up to Poverty Sunday on the 21st June. Their pilgrimage is also set to raise awareness of the work of Together Canterbury- a joint venture between the Diocese of Canterbury and Church Urban Fund.
Travelling 100 miles in four days, their journey will start at Murston Community Bank and Hub in Sittingbourne, and will finish at the new Tenterden Savers Credit Union branch and Community Hub. Visiting various projects and communities along the way, each stop will highlight a different aspect of poverty to be found in the diocese; financial, social, disaffection of young people, isolation of the elderly, rural poverty. Throughout the four days, Keith and David will be reliant on goodwill and handouts for food and shelter.
All the projects they plan on visiting are run by, or supported by the local churches. To find out more or too sponsor them, visit their Just Giving page and tweet your support using #onyerbike
