2.6 challenge for St Nic’s: What people did …

We know lots of people did funny/silly/difficult/tiring things on Sunday to support our church! We don’t have the final figure yet but it certainly runs into hundreds of pounds. Open up this post to find out what people did.

Sue Silver set herself the challenge of climbing up and down her stairs counting to 26 in French , then again counting in German and again, counting backwards in English. Wonderful!

Keith Paskins completed 26 hit of a shuttlecock (eventually!)

On his morning cycle ride, Jim said ‘Good Morning’ to 26 people. Most of them said it back to him!

Phil also cycled (the evidence is below!) – it just so happens that a ride from his house to the church and back is 2.6 miles!

Anna spent 2.6 hours weeding the garden; it must look lovely now!

Of course, others did the 2.6 miles on foot.

Perhaps the most complex was Pam Taylor’s challenge; to walk the 2.6 miles to church and to count 26 different wild flowers on the way then on the way home, to count 26 trees/shrubs. Don’t believe it? Look at this…..
