More than 30 Counties throughout England (and more recently Wales) are involved in the sponsored Ride and Stride.
This takes place on the second Saturday of September between 10am and 6pm.
This year the date is 9th September 2017
You can cycle, walk, run, or ride to raise money for the region’s historic churches and chapels of all denominations. Participants seek sponsorship to visit as many churches on the yearly list as they wish. They plan their own route and set their own speed. The money raised by each participant is equally divided between the historic churches trust in their region and the church of their choice.
This year David Baugh will be cycling to raise money for our local church, St Mary’s Monxton.
Please support St Mary’s by sponsoring David by telephone on 710641 or via https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/david-baugh.
