Ride and Stride Day: September 8th

Welcome to RIDE+Stride, the foremost annual event to raise funds for repairs to Leicester and Leicestershire's historic churches, chapels and meeting houses

Can you be part of this event? Help to raise funds for Holy Rood and Holy Trinity Churches? We need people to act as stewards in Packington church on the day.  And you can be sponsored for stewarding.There are sign up lists in church. Can you ride your bike or walk between churches and be sponsored? Details from Faye Bowers on 01530 271152 (Packington) or Mary Ikin on 01530 260375 (Normanton).

Over £1,000,000 has been raised in Leicestershire since 1990 when County and City joined the 35 or so English Counties staging the event, an inspiration by Suffolk from 1982. The event continues to raise around £40,000 annually in Leicestershire. Half the sponsorship money is paid to a church, chapel or meeting house of the participant's choice.

The other half contributes to the Leicestershire Historic Churches' Trust's assets and funds grants for eligible repairs  and some improvements of basic facilities in churches, chapels and meeting houses.
