RIDE+STRIDE 2020

Hi there

This is normally the time when you are asked if your Church would like to take part in this year’s Ride & Stride event.  Unfortunately due to the current pandemic situation all future plans are on hold.

Firstly a big thank you to you and your Church’s support in the past, which was and, still is invaluable to the Trust.  Without this help the Trust would not be able to function as well as it does.

Last year the total raised was over £ 16,000.00, within this amount there were 4 individual Churches who raised over £1,000.00 each – a tremendous achievement – Very well done – but any amount raised helps towards the costs of restoration and repairs to keep our historic Churches open to the public.

There is a possibility that some form of the event may go ahead – albeit in a revised form.  This is being looked into at present – or if you have any suggestions on how to raise money at short notice – then please let me know. I will get back to you as soon as I am aware of what is happening.

In the meantime please stay safe and well.

Kindest regards

RIDE+STRIDE 2019

Firstly a big thank you to those churches who took part last year – and to those who managed to return their paperwork well done – BUT if you did forget to send in your return it’s never too late to contribute.

Refunds are now in the process of being dealt with. To those churches who requested no refund a big thank you is extended.

All the monies raised goes towards the upkeep of our historic churches, chapels and meeting houses which helps them to survive. Roofs leak, ancient timbers rot and medieval stonework crumbling all need attention.

On the right is a picture from last year’s event, featuring a brother and sister riding – as they do each year – on their very old tandem – they are not affiliated to any church – they just love doing it for fun.

Ride + Stride held second Saturday in September is an event for people of faith and people of no faith. It is for long-time members of a congregation and also families who have never been to church but just want to do something fun.

Let’s hope that the weather is as kind as last year for this year’s event – to be held again on second Saturday in September – the details will follow later.
