Below is a message from Lorraine Graham, longstanding church member and Chair of Governors at our CofE Primary School:
Rachael and Ryan McKinlay got married at St George's church in 2016 and both their children Logan and Joshua were christened here becoming part of the St George's family.On Saturday 23rd September, Ryan along with a fellow work colleague Ceyhun set off on a 2500 miles charity cycling challenge to Cyprus.
In 2016 Ceyhun and his wife lost their only daughter Tanyel to a rare form of bone cancer at the young age of 20. She had been diagnosed weeks after her 18th birthday.The family setup the teenage cancer charity Tanyel's smile in her memory.The cycle started at Elham cemetery in London where she is buried and aims to reach north Cyprus where she enjoyed her summer holidays with her family. Through doing so in line with September teenage cancer month they aim to raise awareness and provide support to teenagers with cancer in Cyprus.
Please pray for them in this gruelling challenge that they face in the month ahead. For those wishing to donate click here.
