Philip Heyburn

I am a member of the High St. Lurgan Methodist Church and am aware of the great work that World Development and Relief do in providing long-term assistance to those who are unable to help themselves out of difficult situations. I wanted to use the run to raise money and was delighted to be able to support WDR. 

It’s just such a pleasure to be able to use the gifts and abilities that God has blessed me with to make people aware of the work WDR is doing and raise funds at the same time. 

In my late teens I expressed my willingness to serve God overseas. Since then God has led me to serve and work for Him here at home. But in running for WDR it has been such a pleasure to use some of the gifts God has provided me with to help those who have been called to serve overseas and indeed those in need overseas.

Ran the 2016 & 2017 Belfast Marathon for WDR
