BISHOP CHRISTINE RAISES OVER £4K FOR WERS!

Bishop Christine ran the Great North Run for WERS and raised a whopping £4,339! The total is still going up! Sporting a purple t-shirt as befits a Bishop, Bishop Christine enjoyed the wonderful atmosphere and friendly greetings from passers-by as she completed the gruelling half-marathon.

Lindsay Cross, WERS Director, says:

‘‘WERS has the greatest respect for anyone who can run 13½ miles! Bishop Christine has raised a staggering amount of money and given hope to the many asylum seekers and refugees who come to WERS for support.  A huge thank you to Bishop Christine and all those who have so generously supported her run!
