Team story

[p][b]We are a group of 15 young people and youth leaders from three areas of the Diocese of Bristol who are travelling to Uganda in July 2018 in order to meet and work alongside other young people in Uganda.[/b] [/p][p]Thanks to all the generosity of those who have given and those who have pledged to give we have now reached our target when we include gift aid repayments - a target which felt completely out of reach back in April when we had only raised a little over £6000! THANK YOU. Any extras now will be used to cover unexpected expenses and to be generous to the communities we visit.[/p][p][b][i]Completed Events:[/i][/b][/p][p][b][i]Sponsored Cycle Ride[/i][/b][/p][p]May 5th and 6th fifteen young people and adults completed an 80 mile cycle ride. We will be visiting over 30 churches in our sending deaneries. This was a huge challenge for most of the young people travelling and it helped to build us together as a team. We were overwhelmed by the generosity of churches and individuals as we went around keeping us fed and watered. Despite four falls and a few close encounters with brambles and nettles we all made it round together. Please make a donation and wish us well.[/p][p][b][i]Emily Moore ran the Wincanton Triathlon [/i][/b][/p][p]On Sunday 22nd April 2018 Emily (see photo below) competed in the triathlon and won her age class! So far she has raised over £600 from her efforts. Well done Emily.[/p][p][b]Matt Holman drove over 1000 kms in a very ancient van[/b] with at least four breakdowns over three days in June. Good job![/p][p][b]Dan Jones cycled an amazing 325 miles[/b] across the UK in a 24 hour period[/p][p]Our hope is that we will work alongside young people living on the streets of Kampala, stay with young people in a village community in rural Uganda sharing in their lives and spending time in their schools understanding how their experiences differ from our own. We will also visit young people in a rural fishing community before spending a short time in a wilderness area.The trip will be both challenging and educational as we encounter young people, learn about their daily challenges and for a short while share their daily lives. A number of the group have never travelled abroad before so not only will they experience flying for the first time, they will also explore a new country, climate and culture for 12 days. The group is drawn from Pinehurst, Swindon; Eastville, Bristol and Sea Mills, Bristol.[/p][p]This trip is part of the Diocese of Bristol link with the Church of Uganda which encourages the building of life changing relationships across our very different cultures.[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][img]https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/resources/fundraiser-images//aa50c38e-48a7-4bad-ab61-1c95d5ba9a19.jpeg[/img][/p]
