Ride + Stride a roaring success!

Date: 11 September 2012
THIS WEEKEND SAW THE 31st ANNUAL RIDE + STRIDE take place nationwide, and cyclists and walkers were out in force on the streets and roads across the Diocese.

Dozens of walkers, cyclists and horse riders turned out for the event, to raise thousands of pounds for repairs and restoration to the churches and chapels of Surrey, with half the money raised going to the church or chapel of the sponsored rider's or striders choice.

Chris Jany, from St Martin’s, East Horsley, was one of the people who took advantage of the sunny weather last weekend to hop on his bike and raise money for Surrey Church Preservation Trust.

Chris said: “Each year a few of us from St Martin’s, East Horsley attempt to visit the 28 churches in the Leatherhead area.

“This year was no exception and with the beautiful weather we spent an undue amount of time chatting, hearing the history and climbing belfries. It was a great day.”

Surrey Church Preservation Trust hopes to raise £20,000 from this year’s Ride + Stride.

“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field;

it is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.”

Matthew 13:31
