The Rev Elizabeth Hanna and the Rev Mellissa Jeffers completed the Belfast Marathon eight-mile walk on May 1, raising £1,265 for the Church of Ireland Bishops’ Appeal. 

Their particular project of choice is supporting Christian Aid in their work with communities in Honduras. Funds raised will help families who live in the dry corridor become more resilient to climate change through new agricultural practices, rainwater harvesting and drip irrigation and improved nutrition.

Elizabeth and Mellissa thanked everyone who supported them, particularly Lydia Monds, Bishops’ Appeal Education Advisor, for her encouragement.
