Funding has been secured for a new community pot after completion of a sponsored walking challenge across Scotland and Northumberland by a Nidderdale church group.
Vicar of Upper Nidderdale, Reverend Darryl Hall helped lead 9 other walkers across the St Cuthbert's Way last month. The six day challenge took them across the rolling hills of Kirk Yetholm and Cheviots before arriving at Lindisfarne.
The fund will go towards supporting new initiatives proposed by anyone within the community, which will be administered by the parochial church. The other half of the fund will go towards helping maintain churches across the area.
