Comments Comments Off on Volunteers, you are valued!
It’s an open road for volunteers. One of our board members Ann Stuart – and husband Simon (pictured) – are currently cycling from John O’Groats to Land’s End to raise funds for A Rocha UK and Synchronicity Earth.
A Rocha UK enjoys support from an impressive range of volunteers, just like the Stuarts. From the keen souls who show up early on a misty morning to ring birds and count dragonflies on our reserves – to the editor of our magazine – we couldn’t exist without you!
Across the length and breadth of the country, A Rocha UK volunteers speak in churches, bringing to life the many connections between caring for God’s earth and the gospel. Simon Brown, who co-ordinates those speakers, is also a volunteer.
Could you spare some time to help mobilise Christians and the Church to care for God’s earth? Whether your expertise looks like an acorn or an oak tree, we’d love to hear from you!
Of course, you don’t have to pedal across the country to help us. But do think of Ann and Simon on their gruelling cycle ride.
‘We’re both cyclists,’ say the couple on their Just Giving page, ‘but we’ve never done anything on this scale before. So we don’t know if we can make the full 1,000 miles. We’ll both be 61 at the time of the trip in July and August. But we’re going to do our very best!’
Their sponsorship page is open here – please do sponsor them if you can. We pray for them safe cycling, open roads and the wind always at their backs.
