Cycling canon John Bowers 2016

undefinedThe Revd Canon John Bowers will soon embark on another of his sponsored cycling pilgrimages. At the end of May he will be pedalling about 250-miles to Anglesey and around the island, visiting Christian sites. His son Chris, who has joined John on several previous pilgrimages, will also be on this one.

Canon John Bowers is a retired clergyman who lives West Kirby. He’s been raising funds for the Barnabas Fund charity annually since his retirement in 2002.

Our picture shows John with his son Chris, and Chris’s 16-year-old daughter Ayse on the summit of Croagh Patrick in Ireland, from last year’s pilgrimage.

You can sponsor John and Chris by writing and send a donation to Canon John Bowers at 2 Shalford Grove, West Kirby CH48 9 XY. Please make your cheque payable to ‘Barnabas Fund’ and indicate if it is to be gift aided.

All the money raised will be divided and donated to help two causes: firstly, to maintain and care for girls who are at risk of female genital mutilation in Kenya; and secondly to support Syrian Christians with food and medical aid during the present conflict.
 
Canon John said: “From the depths of my heart I thank individuals and churches who last year helped us raise £18,720-00 – sent without deduction to the Barnabas Fund. We hope people will be as generous this year as the need increases.”
