Love the Street evangelism training in Norwich
The Archdeacon’s Charge is an annual sponsored fun run or walk and family picnic organised by the Diocese in support of the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
The event was created by the Venerable John Ashe, Archdeacon of Lynn, as a fun way for parishes to raise money for their church and the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
The event has been running since 2010 and each year it continues to grow. Since it began the event has raised nearly £100,000 for the EAAA.
