Ride to help young adults Life NoW 2013


undefinedThree people from a Chester church are going a 200-mile cycle ride to raise money for a respite centre in NW England for young adults with life limiting conditions. In all 12 people will be cycling, a mix of family and friends.

Ian Percival, a member of All Saints Church, Hoole, Chester, is one of those going on the sponsored ride from Newcastle upon Tyne to Edinburgh from 28 to 31 May.

Ian, who is also head teacher at Whitegate C of E Primary School, Northwich, said: “ Last year’s cycle challenge was well supported. This year we aim to grow throughout the diocese and beyond. I hope and pray that the people of the North West will support the appeal.”

Ian’s daughter Rebecca and his wife, Karin, are also going on the ride, as are John and Alex Lewis, also from Chester.

The money raised will go to Life NoW, a charity which seeks to meet the needs of young adults with life-limiting, life-threatening and end-of-life conditions.
