The Annual Sponsored Ride & Stride is a National event and every second Saturday in September cyclists all round the country are out making money for their local county Churches Trust.
The idea started in Suffolk, and consistently Suffolk has headed the table of funds raised. The Ride & Stride is the main source of income to Suffolk Historic Churches Trust to enable it to make grants to churches and chapels of all denominations towards repair and restoration costs.
The Ride & Stride is run entirely by volunteers and is inter-denominational, with cyclists invited to seek sponsors who will undertake to pay an agreed sum of money for each place of worship visited by the cyclist between 9.00 a.m. and 5.00 p.m. on Ride & Stride Day. The money raised by each participant is shared equally between the Suffolk Historic Churches Trust and the place of worship nominated by the cyclist.
Entry & sponsorship forms will be available nearer to the date from John Millward, Churchwarden 01728 668712.
