Lone parent of four Donna Crowther will be walking 100 miles in January to celebrate her 50th birthday and to raise £100,000 for refugees. She will be joined by 14 core walkers, including local Anglican priest the Revd Deborah Curram and United Reformed Church Minister Noel Sharp, who will walk the whole 100 mile distance.
The walk will start and end in Tetbury, Donna’s home town and will go through villages and towns that have played a part in Donna’s Christian life. Prayers will be said at each day’s beginning and ending church. At the end church each day there will be tea and the bells will be rung.
She said: “I cannot choose my birthday, neither can refugees choose when they must leave their homes.”
The walk begins on Saturday 12 January at St Mary’s Church, Tetbury at 7.30am with a big breakfast. Anyone is welcome to join and walk for as much time as they have available.
