|Dromore Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church||
This year marks the 400th anniversary of Dromore Non Subscribing Presbyterian Church. To celebrate this, we’ve launched a charity walking challenge - called Walk400 - in aid of the Cancer Fund for Children.
We hope it will inspire our congregation, young and old, regular attenders and not-so-regular attenders, to come together, play their part - large or small - and work towards a common goal, and reviving some community spirit in our church, which is essential after the last couple of years of Covid.
If we don’t work at reviving our congregational spirit, then it won’t happen, so that’s why we need you to get behind Walk 400.
Whether you are able to make a large or small contribution, or even if walking is too much for some but they can give lots of encouragement from the side lines and make a donation, it doesn’t matter, everyone’s contribution is highly valued.
To clock up 400 miles as a Church Community to celebrate our 400th Anniversary. (Not for every member to walk 400 miles individually!)
For each mile we aim to raise £2.
We aim to raise £800 to the Cancer Fund for Children.
JOIN IN 3 SIMPLE STEPS
There are three simple steps to getting involved.
STEP ONE IS WALK:
Pick a day, time and distance of your choosing - and get your walking shoes on! You can walk on your own or in a group, around Dromore or on a Hiking Trail or in a nearby Park.
STEP TWO IS RECORD:
RECORD THE EVENT: Take Photo's, selfies and perhaps even a short video and share them on the WALK400 What's App group. Tell us a bit about your walk - who, when and where - how many miles you walked, your donation amount, and please confirm whether you have donated online or intend to leave cash into church.
RECORD THE MILES: When walking as a group or a family, only record the actual distance of the route walked. In other words, we will be counting only the miles of each journey, not the cumulative miles of all the people on that journey.
For example: If a family of four go for a two-mile walk, then the number of miles logged towards the Walk 400 target is still only two miles. It’s NOT 8 miles.
STEP THREE IS DONATE:
For every mile recorded, donate £2 by placing the money in an envelope, writing WALK400 on it and placing it in the Sunday collection basket.
Remember, when walking as a family, only count the distance of the route, not the collective miles for everybody in the family.
If the family of 5 walked a 3 mile route together, only donate £2 x 3 miles = £6 total donated by the family.
