James with the Very Revd Jo Delfgou outside St Mary's Church, Hadleigh; And outside Milden Church on last year's Ride & Stride.
Thanks for taking the time to visit my Suffolk Churches Ride and Stride sponsorship page.
On Saturday 9th September 2023, I will be taking part in this brilliant fundraising event, cycling between many of South Suffolk's beautiful churches. This year I will be splitting my donations between the Suffolk Historic Churches Trust and St Mary's in Hadleigh who are currently trying to raise £3.5 million for refurbishments and upgrades to the Church.
Organised by Suffolk Historic Churches Trust (SHCT), Suffolk Churches Ride and Stride, and Pedal & Drive is an annual event which sees several thousand cyclists and walkers of all ages, (and drivers of vintage and classic cars) taking part in the annual fundraising event for the repair and upkeep of Suffolk churches.
This year the Trust is celebrating its 50th anniversary.
Founded in 1973, the Suffolk Historic Churches Trust makes grants to churches and chapels of all denominations towards the repairs, improvements and restoration of our beautiful Suffolk churches.
I would be very grateful for any donation that you can make to this very worthwhile cause. To donate to the Suffolk Historic Churches Trust, please visit my JustGiving page.
