Members of the Cathedral’s chapter team and Church House, Hove have pledged to take part in this year’s Ride and Stride to support Sussex Historic Churches Trust and thank them for a significant grant received for the Diocese of Chichester cathedral roof. (to read the news story, visit here)
Sussex Historic Churches Trust supports urgent repairs and restoration for historic churches, chapels and meeting-houses across Sussex. The funds distributed are raised from the annual Ride & Stride – a sponsored ride or walk in which people all over Sussex walk or cycle between churches, exploring and enjoying the countryside.
Participants are asked to raise money through sponsorship. You will also be helping Chichester Cathedral as 50% of the sponsorship goes directly to your chosen Church, the other 50% to the SHCT fund.
Riders and striders across Sussex will be supporting their local church by taking part and churches across Sussex open their buildings for the day to welcome the visitors. They arrive either on foot or bicycle – although there are no restrictions on how you travel between churches. One year someone completed a circuit on horseback!
