Luke shows how Hope comes full cycle (or circle)
The first homeless tenant of Peterborough-based Christian charity Hope into Action is now raising money for the homeless.
Luke Plumridge is cycling the 55 miles from Peterborough to Lincoln on Friday (13 July) to raise money for the charity who helped him out of homelessness.
He will be cycling with the founder of the charity, Ed Walker, who first met Luke almost exactly eight years ago, and gave him a home.
They will cycle together, but will they both make it? Luke has been training for weeks. Who will get there first? Will they cope with this heatwave?
The pair are leaving at 7am on Friday morning from the cathedral. They will arrive in Lincoln where Hope into Action also have a house! If you'd like to sponsor them, please go to https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/luke-plumridge.
Hope into Action now run 61 homes with 55 churches across 19 towns and cities. The charity won the 2017 Guardian Award for best housing project in the country and the Homeless Link award for ‘Most Innovative housing project.’ 2018, and were winners in the 2012 Inspire Awards (EA Serve Award).
