Last Christmas St Paul’s hosted a community banquet – more than 100 folk from local communities attended. We had a community Christmas choir entertaining us and some magnificent food and fun together. Locals are still talking about it now! This year it’s going to be bigger and better. To help cover costs, we’re organising the St Paul’s PEAKS 4 POUNDS challenge.
This involves a trek up the three highest peaks in Yorkshire in one day – Pen-Y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough – a total climb of more than 2,000 metres.
Those undertaking the trek will gather at a campsite, in the shadow of Pen-Y-Ghent on the evening of Friday, September 21. Where they’ll spend the night under canvas and hike the three peaks the following day.
Following another night camping after the trek, they will return after a hearty breakfast on Sunday, September 23.
Are you up for the challenge.
If you want to join us, you’ll have to be fit. Available for the weekend, and willing to camp out for a couple of nights.
In return we can guarantee a lot of fun, some hard work and a lovely glowy feeling inside, when you’ve completed the challenge and raised lots of money for the community banquet.
If you’re interested, please give your name and contact details to Peter Boyd, or give the church office your name and contact details. Or email the church office now, by clicking here.
We’re going to arrange a get-together before the trek. So we can chat through the timetable, and make sure we’re all ready for the event.
