Member of Parliament for Clwyd South, Simon Baynes MP, recently attended the start of Rev. Andrew Sully’s North Wales Fundraising Walk for Christian Aid Week at St Mary’s Church in Chirk.
On Monday 2nd May 2022, Mr Baynes showed his support for Rev. Andrew Sully from Llandudno, who is currently walking from Chirk to Caernarfon in aid of Christian Aid, along the North Wales Castles Trail, by attending St Mary’s Church in Chirk to join in a prayer and wave Rev. Andrew Sully off on the first day of his fundraising walk. The walk began at Chirk on 2nd May 2022 and will finish at Caernarfon on Saturday 28th May 2022. If anyone would like more details about Andrew’s daily schedule, please email him on firstname.lastname@example.org and feel free to join him on his journey for half a day or a day’s walk.
Llinos Roberts, Church Engagement Officer for North Wales, said:
“Christian Aid are extremely grateful to Rev. Andrew Sully for undertaking this fundraising walk which enables us to connect with churches, communities and supporters along the trail. Events have been organised along the trail so that we may show solidarity with Andrew and everyone who plans to walk with him.
“We are inspired by the strength of community in North Wales and by our friends in Zimbabwe. In Zimbabwe, Jessica struggles to feed her family as the climate crisis worsens. More extreme weather will continue to devastate communities and destroy lives. It's unjust that drought robs women like Jessica of the power to provide food for their families. Every gift, every action an every prayer can change lives this Christian Aid Week 2022”.
Simon Baynes MP said:
“I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Rev. Andrew Sully and everyone involved in this fundraising walk for Christian Aid on their remarkable efforts in raising funds and bringing people together at every part of the walk across North Wales. I was extremely impressed when I heard about Rev Andrew Sully’s challenge to walk from Chirk to Caernarfon and wanted to wish him well in person for his incredible challenge ahead.
“I wish Rev. Andrew Sully the very best for the remainder of his journey across North Wales during the month of May and to thank him for not only raising money for Christian Aid but also for connecting with local groups and supporters who have found it difficult to meet during the pandemic.”
