Donations can be dropped in the Walk-Bucket. Come with your family, with your organisation and get to know others in the community. Felicity writes:

we have recently joined the congregation and next year august we will be doing a sponsored walk along the old pilgrimage way from Winchester to Canturbury in aid of the building project and as thanks for the warm welcome we have received from the  Littlemore congregation.”
