Thank you to all those who took part in Ride+Stride in Shropshire in 2015, 209 churches opened their doors and they raised £26486.48. Three churches this year each raised over £1000, congratulations to them. They were: Clungunford St Cuthbert’s, Shrewsbury St Chad’s, and Hadnall St Mary Magdalene.
Shropshire has over 200 churches and chapels open on the day and wherever you go you’ll be assured of a warm welcome. There is no need to carry lots of food or drink as refreshments are usually available at the churches/chapels en route!
Money raised by cyclists and walkers is shared equally between the Shropshire Historic Churches Trust and the place of worship chosen by the participant. It is a real community effort and great fun to be part of. This year this national event will take place on Saturday 10th September.
Please get out and help raise much needed funds to carry forward the conservation work of the Trust.
During 2015 we were fortunate enough to have generous sponsorship from three companies:
Arrol & Snell Ltd. Architects, Cooper Green Pooks Estate Agents, and Morris Property Ltd. Shrewsbury. These companies have really helped reduce our costs and advertise Ride+Stride Shropshire.
