‘Mimi’s Marathon’

I am very grateful for the support I have been given from the members of the Church family and just wanted to let you know a little more of what I shall be doing with Cross-Cultural Solutions. You can find out more about C-CS at

www.crossculturalsolutions.org

In December 2009, I shall be travelling to Ayacucho, Peru to do volunteer work in the community. Ayacucho is a mountain city which suffered significantly from the communist guerrilla movement in the 1970s and 80s. Today there is still a lot of trouble with drugs, in particular cocaine. I shall be working with young people and women who get caught up in the drug trade, and helping them to establish better life chances. I shall be in Ayacucho for 3 months to support local care-giving projects, and to share some British culture.

In support of my fund-raising, I shall be doing a Sponsored Bicycle Ride
in November, from Sheffield (where I have lived for 5 years) to Fareham. I should be very grateful if any members of the church would consider sponsoring my bike ride. The sponsorship goes directly to the charity hosting my trip to Peru.
