Hello, I'm Maggie, and I'm a schoolsworker in Thanet.  I work for ACTS (Active Christianity in Thanet Schools).

ACTS supports the Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development of Children and Young People; working with the schools and churches of Thanet.

I believe that Acts has an important part in reaching out with God's love to every one of the children and young people in Thanet any way we can. Right now I'm not sure what that looks like for the next few months but with your prayers and God's help, we can make a difference even in the midst of these strange days!

As well as continuing to look at ways of supporting the local schools I would also like to raise money to help continue the work of ACTS, as we rely on the giving of individuals & local churches.

So please sponsor me as I pedal my way "virtually" to all 35 Primary schools in Thanet.  I will stop "virtually" at each school to pray for the children and staff whilst they are in lockdown and preparing to open.  I will cycle back and forth on the cycle path next to my house, until I have ‘clocked up’ the number of miles equivalent to cycling to each school.  I'm not sure how long this will take—I've only just returned to riding a bike after a long gap! 

All donations will go to ACTS & will help to support the Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development of Children and Young People in Thanet.  I'll publish the itinerary of the schools that I'm virtually pedalling to each day on Facebook and by email. So you can join me ‘virtually’ and also pray for the children and staff of each school.
