21 - 23 February 2020 - Youth Trip to Abernethy

Sam & I are taking a group of young people from St Mary's (plus a couple of local families who have always wanted to try skiing) to Abernethy Nethybridge, a Christian Outdoor Centre in Scotland in February 2020. There are currently 21 of us in the party. Sam, being a ski instructor, thinks we wouldn’t want to go for any longer than a few days.

Abernethy NethybridgeWe greatly value the youngsters in our church and to make it possible for them to go on this residential trip, we are running various events to raise enough money to cover the costs of the young people. We need to raise a total of £2500 and so far, we have raised £850!

With Eva(!), Sam and I have already done a sponsored walk from Clacton Pier back to Walton (7 miles of walking!!) and some of those going on the trip did a Abernethy Nethybridgewhole day of car washing which raised £221!

There is a Quiz Night on Saturday, 7 September which, I am sure, is going to be a lot FUN! Please visit reception to buy your tickets at only £8 each!

We hope to organise a few more events later this Autumn, to raise money and to get the young people involved in running things!

If you have any questions, please contact me by email. - Lauren
