The Ride+Stride last year took place on the 10th September. Unfortunately, prolonged heavy rain resulted in participants getting very wet! However, people were cheerful in spite of the weather and very, very appreciative of those churches that were open and providing them with much needed sustenance and encouragement.
This year the amount raised through sponsorship was £15,366. Gift Aid received was £3,262 making a total overall of £18, 628. This was slightly lower than last year’s figure of just over £20,000. Half of the amount raised through sponsorship was returned to the rider’s own church and the rest was contributed to the Trust to enable it to continue making grants for the maintenance and repair of churches in the county.
