A CHURCH in Crowthorne is preparing for blisters as it makes final preparations for a sponsored walk.
Members of St John the Baptist Church will be putting on their walking boots for a five-mile trek around the village as part of its support for the Time For Climate Justice Campaign.
“The idea is to raise awareness of the problem of climate change and to promote walking in our local area,” says organiser Hannah Brooks. “Walkers are welcome to gain sponsorship to raise money for Christian Aid who also support this campaign, but are also welcome to just come along for pleasure.”
It starts at 9.30am on Saturday, September 15. Walkers will set off from the church and will end up at a special stall which the church is holding outside the village library, next to Crowthorne Baptist Church, on Crowthorne’s High Street.
The Time for Climate Justice stall, held as part of the village market, runs from 10am to 2pm and features information on climate change, photographic entries from a recent competition and some freebies.
“All are welcome to the walk and the stall,” Hannah added. “Please come along and support our efforts to raise awareness of the injustice of climate change.”
