The Parish Project SponsoredWalk beginning at Our Lady’s in Currie and finishing in St. Cuthbert’s Hall duly took place. 25 people were involved some taking longer than others to finish but then that might have been due to a detour they made ! Please hand in any money you have earned by the end of the month.
With every best wish and blessing to you,
and all those who are dear to you
