Rosemary Jewers is walking for Little Massingham Church

Peddars Way Charity Walk.     Please consider supporting Rosemary Jewer’s fundraiser for Little Massingham Church.

Rosemary says, “I’m going to walk almost 90 miles to raise money towards restoring Little Massingham’s Church roof, following the theft of the lead.

On 22nd September, I’ll be walking from the Roman, Balkerne Gate, Colchester to Holme next the Sea; looking for and, at times, walking on, the ancient Roman route known as Peddars Way.

I’ve been keen to follow up a story handed down through some four generations of my family that said Peddars Way ran between Colchester and the Norfolk coast. Having been born and raised in Little Massingham, this family story really resonated with me.

The walk was due to have taken place at the end of April but Covid -19 put it on hold. I’m trying to raise £5,000 plus. If you could help, that would be wonderful.

I welcome anyone wishing to join me as I trek along sections of this timeworn road. The research and details of where I will be on certain days can be found on my blog.

Lings Country Goods, Lynn Lane, Gt Massingham  have kindly offered to accept donations. Cheques can be made payable to me.

I also have a JustGiving page

I do hope you can help and support this fundraising.”
