John Peet, former General Secretary of L'Arche UK, is hoping to raise £30,000 by cycling 1500 miles around the UK and visiting every L'Arche Community and Project on the way. The money will go to L'Arche in Zimbabwe, where funds are so desperately needed just to keep the Community going, and to the Projects in Glasgow and Manchester that, with your help, will soon become L'Arche Communities.

The Journey Begins

Silsden. West Yorkshire. 1st June 2008. The big send-off.

John begins his mammoth journey round the UK to raise money for L'Arche, in particular for the new communities planned in Glasgow and Manchester, and also for the community in Zimbabwe where support is desperately needed.

Hi John, I was glad to read that you had a lovely welcome in Leyburn. The weather had not been wonderful in Coverdale for most of the day. I was the 10 mile runner you met. I had not run that distance before and I was spurred on to make it home by what you were doing. Thanks a lot and good luck with the rest of the journey.
