Barnby villagers Paul & Janine Stanley and Clem Lee completed their Calling All Saints cycle challenge last weekend.

The route took them to all 30 All Saints churches in the Nottinghamshire & Southwell Diocese through challenging weather as well as terrain.  They cycled just over 80 miles on rainy Friday, 56 miles on windy/squally Saturday and 60 miles on sunny Sunday – a total of 196miles (316km)

The team would like to thank Les Chaplin for his help collecting and dropping them off with their bikes.  Derick Parker, for the loan of his trailer and Steve & Elaine Beeching for printing their team jerseys at no charge.

Finally the team would like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has given their time, encouragement and support in making this challenge a success!

All the photographs from the challenge can be found on the Friends of All Saints flickr album

Donations are still coming in and it’s going to be close but it looks hopefully like the team may hit the magic figure of £1000 donations received with a portion of offline donations being also eligible for gift-aid.  The btmydonate fundraising page will remain open for a little while and can be found here:
