Story of Terry cycles 480 miles in aid of St Mary’s Transformation Project

Cycling in the footsteps of Saint James the Great, along the ancient pilgrimage route from France to Spain, seemed like an appropriate way to raise money and awareness for the Transformation Project at St. Mary’s Church Wivenhoe. Terry Vanner, a keen cyclist and one of our parishioners, decided he would take up the virtual challenge of cycling the route, as he thought he needed to lose some weight and before he was too old! The actual route starts in the French town of Saint Jean Pied-de-Port to the shrine of the apostle Saint James the Great, in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Spain, 480 miles away. As it is not currently possible to physically cycle this route, Terry will cycle the lesser hilly regions of Essex rather than northern Spain. His progress along the virtual route will be visible on stmaryswivenhoe.org Facebook and other Apps.

The aim of this project is to modernise the infrastructure of our existing building by creating an independently functioning community space, known as the Annexe. Briefly the Annexe will provide a southern entrance with modern WC facilities including a toilet for less able people and a baby-changing area. The main feature of the Annexe will be the Community Room. This will provide a large multi-purpose area that can seat up to 45 people. Double doors add the flexibility to open the space onto the churchyard. Naturally, a small dedicated kitchen space for food preparation and serving will be available. Finally the existing garden next to the south porch will be re-landscaped to create an attractive exterior social area. I hope that you will support Terry by donating and thus enabling us to achieve our goal,See other opportunities to help us here.
