2017 Cambridge to Haslingfield Sponsored Walk “In the Steps of Bishop Mackenzie”

                                       2017 Walkers Starting at Gonville and Caius College

For the 9th year in succession walkers from Haslingfield set out from Gonville & Caius Chapel in Cambridge to walk to All Saints’ Haslingfield in commemoration of the walk which Bishop Charles Mackenzie undertook to assist with services in All Saints’ in the mid-nineteenth century.

Each year they have raised monies through the walk to help with projects at Magomero in Malawi, the site where Mackenzie initially set up his base on his arrival in Africa.   Monies currently raised will be donated via MACS (Malawi Association for Christian Support) to provide a ceiling for the clergy house in Magomero, where the buildings now include a school and a church in his memory.

Modern day walkers receive welcome refreshment on their arrival at Haslingfield Church !
