Canoeing down the Stour for Christian Aid

On Thursday 13 August, ten people, including Revd John Boardman, Simon Snell, and teenagers Judith and Matthew Gill from All Saints’ Church in Sudbury, arrived safely in Bures after paddling from Sudbury. This year the event supports a Christian Aid project to make pregnancy and birth safer, prevent HIV, reduce underage pregnancies and tackle gender-based violence for over 200,000 indigenous women and girls in Honduras and El Salvador.

The money raised will again be quadrupled by matched funding from the European Union. Any of the participants will be glad to receive sponsorship, or you can donate online via www.justgiving.com/John-Boardman4. Many thanks to those who have already given.
