There is much excitement in my little world this morning.
Out of the blue I received a comment on Dory’s World followed by a tweet from Stacey at the Churches Conservation Trust.
“@Dorysworld The CCT would like to help with 50 b4 50 email us for more details” read the tweet.
How exciting, so I did.
It would seem that the CCT is enjoying my tales of travel around its churches and the little Fifty before Fifty challenge and is offering to help me out.
I emailed (obviously) and in her reply, Stacey said: “I was hoping I could help with compiling routes and dates for you to see them. We give tours in some of our venues and it would be nice if we could get you on a couple.”
She added: “Would you be interested in being mentioned in our newsletter or pitched to our media contacts. Your story and challenge is inspiring and I think a lot of people could gain from reading it.”
How very exciting :)
She also added she may be able to help me with another one of the challenges on my list. Number 30 is to take part in a charity event. They have lots, or maybe I could organise one for myself. It would seem a good payback to raise some money for an organisation that I am obviously getting a lot of pleasure out of.
So that’s why I am very excited today :)
Incidentally, I did a bit of a count up and discovered that I have so far checked off 32 of the churches. At my first count there were 342 (and they’ve added a couple since then) so I am in need of the assistance offered :) The countdown clock has ticked down again and I only have 2.5 years before I am fifty! Best get cracking.
