A Daventry parishioner, David Williams MBE is undertaking a gruelling charity cycle ride commencing on 1st October 2022.

David will be riding part of the ‘French’ route of the Camino de Santiago from Leon to Santiago, approximately 194 miles and a total climb of approximately 14,400 feet

He is doing this pilgrimage to raise money for the Caritas Northampton Ukraine Diocesan appeal, and the CAFOD DEC Pakistan Floods appeal.

It is also a personal pilgrimage in support of his brother who has cancer. David is 83 and has cancer himself. Once the ride starts he will be doing a daily blog with images and updates on progress.

Please include David in your prayers as he undertakes this gruelling exercise.
