Gillian Nord: May 2017
On 20th July I will be setting out from London with a tour group to cycle approximately 181 miles over 3 days finishing in Paris. This will be the hardest challenge I have ever undertaken and I hope in the process to raise as much money for Karibuni Children as I can. The charity helps children from the streets and slums of Kenya. I have set up an on- line fundraising page which can be found by clicking here. I also have paper sponsorship forms and will be at church with these over the coming weeks.
Karibuni and I would be really grateful for any support you can offer. Thank you in anticipation. Iif you want to pass on the link to others, it is www.mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/gilliannord.

Is it time to update our Christian CV, as there is the danger that the new...
