Mervyn Smith

Highley to Hammerfest Motorcycle Challenge

Date:July 2018

Meryvn is an experienced motorcyclist who has been involved in the UK motorcycle industry for most of his working life. He overcame major life saving heart surgery in October 2016 and was so grateful for this second chance given to him that he wanted to do something positive for the persecuted church. A passionate advocate of Open Doors, Mervyn’s heart is to speak for those who have no voice. Covering approximately 5,500 miles, he will travel solo through eight European countries before finishing in Hammerfest, Norway; the world’s most northerly city. He is aiming to raise £10,000 to support the persecuted church and will be speaking at a number of churches along the way. If you’d like him to come and share more at your church please contact and we’ll put you in touch with him.
