Archdeacon of Belfast supports fundraising cycle challenge

Friday June 21st 2024

To help raise funds for an Abaana project in Uganda, Armagh Diocesan Communications Officer Jonathan Hull aims to cycle non-stop a full 390 miles around Northern Ireland in approximately 27 hours – and the Archdeacon of Belfast will join him for the first 110 miles!

The Ven Barry Forde will be helping Johathan raise funds in support of Mullabrack and Kilcluney Parish Churches Team’s visit to Uganda from July 15-29.

Jonathan’s challenge begins in Markethill, Co Armagh, today, Friday June 21 – the longest day of the year – at 5pm, and he will cycle non-stop (except for short food breaks) through the night and all through Saturday in an anti-clockwise direction around the coast of Northern Ireland, cycling through all nine Ulster counties.

The Archdeacon of Belfast himself completed a two-wheeled marathon challenge back in 2019, cycling the 450 miles from Mizen to Malin Malin Head with a team from the Hub in aid of Abaana and Waakisi, another Ugandan charity. Barry will be among a number of Jonathan’s cycling friends joining him on the route.
