Victorious in Rome
On Sunday 2 April 2017, in the pouring rain, Linda Cronin of Ilfracombe parish and Michael Quainoo from the parish of Newton Abbot completed the Rome Marathon. They have both struggled with injuries in training and on the day but have soldiered on, determined to finish. ‘The training has not been easy,’ said Michael before the race, ‘but I believe I have still had it easier than the children who have no beds to sleep on, no school uniforms or warm clean clothing when needed.’ Thanks to their will, drive, power and tenacity many children and families across the Diocese will now benefit from the funds he and Linda have raised. What a rewarding achievement!
If you, or someone you know, would like to take up this challenge in 2018, please get in touch NOW to book your place. Complete the application form above or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information, advice or enquiries.

EXPERIENCE GOD’S WORLD FROM A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE
If running is not your thing, how about doing a skydive? Jumping from 10,000 feet what better where to appreciate the beauty of God’s creation and the world around us!
This is without doubt the best way to experience freefall, skydiving and parachuting. Thirty minutes training covers everything you need to know to successfully complete your Tandem Skydive experience. Then “sit back and enjoy the ride”.
Before the aircraft even starts to taxi you will be securely strapped to the front of a highly experienced BPA (British Parachute Association) qualified Tandem Instructor and after a 20 minute pleasure flight, soaking up the sensational country-side (whilst gently nibbling at your finger nails) it’s playtime. You accelerate to approximately 120mph, falling from a minimum of 10,000 feet. This gives you approximately 45 seconds exploiting gravity and having the time of your life. A five minute parachute ride “almost completes” the experience as your instructor flies you safely back to earth.
Raise £500 for the Society and your dive and instruction will be totally free!
