Phillip Hinde's sponsored walk to Chichester Cathedral for Christian Aid...

In May, Phillip Hinde will be walking ninety miles through the Diocese of Chichester to help raise funds for Christian Aid.  His sponsored walk is timed to coincide with the 60th Christian Aid Week appeal and will start from his parish in Etchingham on Friday 12th May and end at Chichester Cathedral on Tuesday 16th May.  Phil took part in a Christian Aid mountain trek in Scotland two years ago, and really enjoyed the experience. This time he felt he should do something nearer to home.  Along the way he is hoping to raise £1,000 to support Christian Aid's work with some of the world's poorest people, of all faiths and none, helping them to lift themselves out of poverty for good.

Phil's pilgrimage will start at his own church in Etchingham and will continue to Burwash and Burwash Weald on the first leg. He will then make four stopovers over the next few days, arriving at Chichester Cathedral in time for Evensong on Tuesday 16th May. The total route is around ninety miles and will cover part of the Cuckoo Trail and the South Downs Way.  

Christian Aid is a faith-based charity that was founded at the end of World War Two in response to the hardships of refugees across Europe. It is now an international organisation with more than seventy year's experience of working in partnership to address the root causes of poverty through integrated development and humanitarian programming, policy and advocacy work.  It operates on the basis of need, irrespective of religion, ethnicity, caste, gender or nationality.

Christian Aid is hoping to raise more than £100,000 from people trekking, running and cycling all over Britain and Ireland this year to help bring about an end to poverty and tackle inequality and injustice across the world.  If you would like to sponsor Phil, then please click here.
