Many thanks to everyone who took part in our ‘socially distanced’ Ride and Stride on Saturday 12th September 2020. Your support is much appreciated. If you have any photos that you can share, please post them on our Facebook page or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
COVID-19 UPDATE 2020
As many churches will not be open this year we have asked participants to simply ride or walk past churches if they are not open. Please see the advice we are giving participants this year on our Rider and Strider page by clicking here.
However, we urge churches to help us to find participants so that we can raise funds this year for the Trust to make grants and for your church too. Amounts raised from sponsorship are shared 50/50 between the church that the participant rides or strides for, and the WCHCT. (Don’t forget there is also a prize of £250 for the church with the highest sponsorship (and there is also a £100 prize for the individual with the highest sponsorship).
Money can be raised with sponsorship forms (see below) and sent to our Treasurer, or participants can make a simple one-off donation or set up a personal fundraising page online with Virgin Money Giving.
If you have not registered your church, chapel or meeting room with us in previous years, please click the green button on the right to register. We can then keep you informed about Ride and Stride this year and in the future.
Please put out a poster (see below) outside your church – and wherever you can in the local community – and recruit as many members of your congregation and community to ride or stride for us
