The Ride+Stride this year took place on the 9th September. The weather was a bit mixed but certainly better than last year.
This year the amount raised by sponsorship was £15,157. Gift Aid received was £3,142 making a total of £18,299-just slightly less than last year. £7,078 was returned to the individual churches who took part and the balance was used to strengthen the funds of the Trust and enable it to continue making grants for the repair and maintenance of the county’s churches.
This year 218 churches took part, with 60 churches having riders or striders. There were 85 riders, 20 striders, and 47 welcomers and others. These figures show a marked increase over last year. The total number of visits made was 1,558.
