The Team completed this ride safely and successfully, raising more than they hoped for the service!
Read below for more information on the purpose of the ride which happened across the weekend of the 24th and 25th of March
Stepping Stone Trust are grateful for the support of the Coast2Coast Rickshaw Charity Ride team. They have chosen to use their epic challenge, riding a rickshaw 250kms across the South Island, to raise funds for our Caroline Reid Family Support Service. This is helping to draw positive attention to our work in the mental health sector and raising awareness of the effects of parental mental illness on children and families. The project leader, Sean Pawson, serves part-time here with us as a Stepping Stone chaplain. He says, “My own experience wrestling with depression during my parenting years, and supporting clients at Stepping Stone, leaves me thoroughly convinced of the critical need many children and families have, and the real value of Stepping Stone’s work in this field.” A brochure containing more information is available here
The Rickshaw Charity Ride team have a mammoth challenge, and an ambitious fundraising target of $10000. We wish them well and pray for God’s blessing on their venture.
