Ride or walk to raise funds for the care of our historic churches

by | 5 September 2020 | Community Event, Retford, Worksop

To all walkers, bike riders, and anyone who enjoys exploring locally, the annual Notts Historic Churches Trust ‘Ride+Stride for Churches’ event will take place on Saturday 12th September, albeit with rather fewer opportunities this year to actually explore churches themselves because of social distancing restrictions.
The event raises funds for the upkeep of historic church buildings, chapels and meeting houses, and for the Nottinghamshire Historic Churches Trust (NHCT) who give grants for repairs and restoration projects. The idea of the Ride+Stride is that people get sponsored to visit churches, ticking them off as they go by taking a photograph or signing a form at the church. The money you raise can be divided 50/50 between NHCT and a church of your choice, if you so wish. The more churches you visit, the more you raise, and there are some lovely rides and walks taking in interesting churches in our area. It’s good exercise, too, with friends and family!
