Event details

Lonely no Longer Sponsored Cycle Tour

The problem and how the money will be used:
Loneliness damages physical and mental health: it is more damaging than obesity; and increases the risk of developing a disability. Those who are lonely can have a 64% increased chance of developing clinical dementia. Churches are uniquely placed to support the lonely people in our communities. Their local presence and existing community life make churches a welcoming place for people of all ages and stages of life.   The Bible talks of people as being designed to be part of God's family and we plan to raise funds to inspire and equip churches to bring this good news to people through the work of Pilgrims Friend Society and a new initiative we are part of called "Faith in Later Life". 

What are we doing?
Cycling a punishing 357 miles visiting care homes in Plymouth, Chippenham, Wantage, Haslemere, Tunbridge Wells, and Brighton and taking services/activities as we go.
