Quakers from Bury St Edmunds travel to Cambridge to pass over letters and messages for world leaders at COP26 Climate Conference




Quakers from Bury St Edmunds looking to have their say on how Governments across the world will tackle climate change have completed their part of a pilgrimage.

The group took part in the Quaker Interfaith Pilgrimage to the COP26 Climate Conference, travelling from Bury to Cambridge earlier this week.

Letters and messages from meetings across Suffolk and Norfolk were brought by the group to the meeting at Hartington Grove.

Quakers from Cambridgeshire will now add their own messages and deliver the growing package to Kings Lynn on August 29.

The bundle will eventually be taken to decision-makers at the COP26 meeting in Glasgow later this year.

Andrew Sterling, of Ipswich, handed the letters and messages over to the Bury pilgrims before they boarded their train to Cambridge.

The pilgrims carried placards explaining their mission and distributed leaflets to other passengers on the train, engaging some in conversation about the climate emergency.
