Mervyn’s trip

A Bridgnorth man who underwent life-saving heart surgery in 2016 has decided he wants to give something back. Mervyn Smith is set to travel from Highley to Hammerfest in Norway to raise money for charity.
Mervyn says, “I’m doing a solo motorcycle round trip of some 5,000 miles from my Shropshire home to the very tip of Norway, way beyond the Arctic Circle, for Open Doors UK to raise awareness of the plight of Christians in countries where it’s impossible to worship freely.”
