Ride+Stride - 14th September 2019 SIGN UP FOR OUR eNEWS

From 8 to 98- no age limit on Wiltshire’s Ride and Striders

Local people are being invited to have a fun day out and help preserve our beautiful Wiltshire Churches with this year’s Ride+Stride event on Saturday 14 September.

Anyone can take part – there is no enrolment fee.  You can walk, ride a bike, a horse or a mobility scooter, and the idea is to visit as many (or as few) churches as you like; you plan your own route.  Last year over 350 people of all ages joined in and raised £62,000.

Any sponsorship money raised is divided between the participant’s chosen church or chapel and the Wiltshire Historic Churches Trust, which provides grants to churches for urgent repairs and enhancements.  Most churches will be open, and many will have someone there to welcome visitors with refreshments.

The day will be officially launched at 10.00 at St Bartholomew’s Church, Corsham, by the Lord-Lieutenant of Wiltshire, Mrs. Sarah Troughton.  All welcome.

Among those taking part this year will be:

Those wishing to sponsor any of these, please contact [email protected].. Even better, take part yourself.  Sponsorship forms, instructions and lists of churches can be downloaded from www.wiltshirehistoricchurchestrust.org.uk.
