Story

In 2014, following chemotherapy and radiotherapy for Hodgkin Lymphoma, I rode from John O'Groats to Land's End and raised £16,000 to equip and train church leaders from across Uganda so that they might better serve their communities.

In 2020 my plan to cycle from Land's End to John O'Groats was scuppered by a patch of black ice, which caused me to break my femur and have a replacement of my replacement hip! Through the wonders of modern surgery, physiotherapy and the grace of God, I am now able to get back on my bike and hopefully raise a similar amount of money for people living much closer to home.

When I became the Bishop of Swindon in 2005, I had little idea of what the question posed to me in 2018 "what will Swindon do for you?" was to have upon me. Without going into details, what Swindon has done for me is opened my heart to the needs of the most disadvantaged in our communities.

That is why I am getting on my bike again, together with Chris Stanley - one of my Cycling Club mates - to cycle from Land's End to John O'Groats (from the Bottom to the Top of the country). We are looking to raise as much as we can for Swindon people who feel themselves to be at the bottom of society with little hope of things changing. At Christmas time especially, we want to remind them that they are loved and valued. Please help us lift them From the Bottom to the Top.
