Thanks to the 22 people who joined our fundraising walk on the south coast to raise funds for volunteer training in Nigeria; and for everyone who supported them financially.
Between us we raised over £2,500 for the three day refresher training programme planned for volunteers in the second half of 2021.
We started our walk at the top of Chichester Harbour beside a tranquil mill pond complete with swan sitting on its nest. The early part of our walk was through open common land before we reached the water’s edge.
The tide was out so we had views of mud flats and yachts in the distance as we walked along a well-worn path and through wooded glades to the shipyard at Dell Quay.
Here we walked down onto the shingle beach before climbing back onto the path and alternating between woods, open fields, houses and the many boats in Chichester Marina.
Then through a more workmanlike shipyard and along the coast to Itchenor where we stopped for lunch in a pub garden.
After lunch we caught the ferry – it held just 12 people and took three trips to get us all to the other side as we weren’t the only ones queuing.
Then along Bosham channel to Bosham village before turning right through farmers’ fields and back to the other side of Fishbourne channel. The last part of our walk took us through reed beds at the head of the channel and back into Fishbourne village.
Please pray for:
