Ride and Stride for historic churches
30/07/18
Riders & Striders outside Holy Trinity Ettington.

The Warwickshire and Coventry Historic Churches Trust is holding Ride and Stride 2018, its annual fundraising event, on Saturday 8th September from 10am to 6pm.

Ride and Stride is a sponsored event where riders and walkers travel between churches, chapels and meeting rooms in their local area. It’s always great fun and supports the repair and restoration of our historic churches.

The event is open to all ages – from babies to 90 year olds! Any form of transport can be used – bike, horse, tractor or buggy – and riders and striders can choose their own route to suit themselves.

Kevin Bond, Chair of the Warwickshire and Coventry Historic Churches Trust says:

“Funding for church restoration is getting harder and Ride and Stride is Warwickshire and Coventry Historic Churches Trust’s main fundraising event, so it is of great importance for us. We are therefore asking for your support to encourage participants to sign up and start fundraising as soon as possible. Taking part is easy and forms for 2018 are available from our website - http://warwickshirechurches.org.uk/i-want-to-ride-or-stride/

Having a great day out around our churches while raising money to keep them for us, and for future generations, is a wonderful way to spend a day with friends, family – and a picnic!“
