Rev Lucy Holt (Rector of St James’ Poole, Rural Dean & Routes to Roots Trustee) is inviting friends and supporters of Routes to Roots to join her this Advent in raising awareness and money for their Christmas appeal. She will be running 55km (in Poole not actually in the Middle East) over Advent (11 x 5km) to mark the journey of Mary and Joseph from Nazareth to Bethlehem. Lucy says “I run very slowly so will run mostly on my own” but there will be a chance for others who’d like to join in this venture to make the last run together on 22nd December. If you’d be interested in running, walking or cycling any of the 55km over Advent please do get in touch with Lucy:
