Ride + Stride is open to walkers as well as horse-riders and cyclists – in fact to anyone using a non-mechanical form of transport. It always takes place on the second Saturday of September between 10.00 a.m. and 6.00 p.m., and the object is to raise money for the repair and restoration of churches and chapels of any Christian denomination in Buckinghamshire. Half the money raised goes to the church or chapel of the participant’s choice, and the other half is added to a general fund which is administered by the Buckinghamshire Historic Churches Trust.
Churches are encouraged to make applications to BHCT for grants to help with church repairs and restoration.
There are lots of things going on in Buckinghamshire’s churches on 14th September take a look at the Participants’ page (see box below) to find out more.
