Walk to raise money for Ebola crisis

Tomorrow, a small group will be walking 80 miles from St Peter and Paul's church in Olney to Big Ben in London, within a weekend, to raise funds for the Olney-Newton link.

As you may have seen in this month's issue of the Phonebox magazine, we shared the news that Ebola had reached Newton, and consequently they are needing our help more than ever. £500 has already been sent from the Olney-Newton link, and more is sure to be needed soon.

The situation in Africa following the outbreak of Ebola is consequently worse than ever, and so the Olney-Newton link is needing more support. There are now at least sixty families in the link community who are quarantined for Ebola. This means they can't earn money, buy food, or even harvest their own food.

Please get involved and donate to help this great cause by sponsoring this 80 mile walk. They are asking that if you would like to donate towards the cause, that you give via their Virgin Money Giving page by clicking here. Alternatively, you can write a cheque made payable to Olney Newton Link.

Any support you are able to give will be greatly appreciated, thank you.
