Leaders of the four main Christian churches in Derry-Londonderry have taken part in the annual ‘Tour de Foyle 10:80’ charity event.
The ‘Tour’, which is now in its fourth year, is organised by the North West Methodist Mission and the Churches Trust. All proceeds go to support welfare projects delivered by the two charities to the most vulnerable people in the community.
This year – for the first time – there was a newly-designed medal for participants who completed the event. Those taking part had the option of walking or running a ‘10k’ or doing an 80 kilometre cycle.
The Bishop of Derry and Raphoe, Rt Rev Ken Good, gave a blessing to the walkers and runners before their event began. They were sent on their way by the Superintendent of the Methodist Mission, Rev Peter Murray. Both churchmen completed the walk along with the Bishop of Derry, Dr Donal McKeown and the Clerk of the Derry and Donegal Presbytery, Dr Robert Buick.
