ride boosts Highbridge and
Burnham Youth Project
boys from Highbridge and Burnham-On-Sea have cycled a 15-mile
circuit, visiting 15 churches along their way, to raise over £200
for a local youth project.
James Biddiscombe and Thomas Fincham peddled their way around
the route in wet weather to help raise money for the project,
which is being overseen by Churches Together Group and South West
Youth Ministries (SWYM).
The 'Highbridge and Burnham Youth Project' will fund two trainee
youth workers to support youth work locally.
James and Thomas told Burnham-On-Sea.com they were very pleased
to have raised £210 from the bike ride and with more sponsor
forms from some churches yet to be returned the total could amount
The Bishop of Taunton welcomed Thomas and James at West Huntspill
Church on the final leg of their trip and also contributed by
sponsoring the boys.
