Whoop whoop for Jo!

Johanna Smart celebrated her 50th birthday by cycling 315km to raise money for us! 

Jo, and her husband Andi, cycled the Spanish pilgrim route, Camino de Santiago, earlier this month. Cycling up to 53 miles a day, they covered the route in just 6 days. 

'It has been an absolutely amazing experience and hopefully we’ve raised a good amount of money for the excellent work of Bible Society,' Jo says.

This day in 1969 marked the beginning of the most extraordinary voyage in human history. The best brains in the US, billions of dollars and the remarkable courage of three men – Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins – combined in an enterprise that saw the mighty Saturn V rocket blast off from the Kennedy Space Center on its way to the moon.
