A sponsored 'Ride & Stride' event is being held on Saturday 14th September, in aid of the Buckinghamshire Historic Churches Trust. Why not participate, and have a fun day out and about?
The idea is to visit as many participating churches as possible during the day either on foot or by cycling; get a stamp to prove you've visited at each one, and raise some money for a good cause. Through your sponsorship, monies raised go (half-and-half) to a church of your choice and the Trust, for the repair of Buckinghamshire churches.
The event is especially popular with families, providing a purposeful opportunity to spend time together.
Full details are available from your local organiser, Richard Matthews. Tel: 01844 292463
