Ed goes the extra mile for Operation Noah … in fact, from Land's End to John O'Groats
Ed Beale is going out of his way to tell people what they can do about climate change – 1,200 miles out of his way, in fact. And every mile will be on foot.
The trek is Ed's answer to the Rainbow Pilgrimage, a day of inspiration and action on 9 th October 2004 . This culminates in a service of dedication for Operation Noah at Coventry Cathedral, where Ed's progress through Britain will be reported.
Ed Beale is a 27-year old postgraduate transport planning student from Leeds . He is a member of South Parade Baptist Church . An experienced walker, Ed has notched up 11 long-distance trips so far.
Walking the length of Great Britain is a lonely job, and Ed would be delighted to know he has your support in his expedition. There are a number of ways you can help.
Speaking slots : If you think your church could hear from Ed at a Sunday service with an Operation Noah or environmental theme, or a large mid-week event, please let us know. The CEL website has lots of ideas and resources.
Sponsorship : You can sponsor Ed's expedition. A form provided overleaf, with which you can use to gather support.
Prayer and support : Ed would be encouraged to know that people are offering practical and prayer support, especially in the event of an emergency, whether they live on or off his route
Accommodation : If you think you might live on Ed's route, he would be extremely grateful for an offer of a comfortable bed and cooked breakfast.
