Ride and Stride for Churches in Kent

The aim of the Ride and Stride is to raise money for our historic Churches and Chapels in and around Kent by sponsorship, either  cycling or walking around the Churches in Kent, this event actually started in Suffolk in 1982 and now 36 Counties take part all on the same day and in Kent alone at least 745 Churches and Chapels will be involved, all together £32million has been raised nationally.

This event also helps and encourages those of us that like to keep fit, in fact the more people from outside the church congregation that take part the more successful we shall be in raising  interest and support for our heritage of church buildings, all denominatons are welcome.

The person being sponsored chooses which Church or Chapel they wish their 50% of funds raised to go to and the remaining 50% goes to the Friends of Kent Churches who use the funds to help the most needy Churches and Chapels in use.

There is a website www.friendsofkentchurches.co.uk and then the link in to the Ride and Stride , where those that wish to enter can download their sponsorship form or use the Just Giving page, also there is a Parish representative who can provide forms as well..

Our event organiser is Carolyn Millen who can be contacted on 01622 843383  or carolyn.millen@virginmedia.com  she can help with more questions if you wish to write an article which  would be GREAT.
