The date for this year’s event is fast approaching and is Saturday September 9th. Sponsor forms and posters are now available (see below) to download and can also be obtained from your local organiser.
Remember you can visit as many or as few churches as you like on the day, and it doesn’t matter whether you walk, run or cycle. Any sponsorship money you raise is split between your chosen church and the Trust ~ making it a good fundraiser for your church as well as the charity.
To encourage people to remember to take photos of their event we will be giving a prize for the best photograph ~ which could be the silliest costume, the most amusing form of transport, the oldest/youngest participant ~ watch out for more information on this nearer the time!
If you would like to become more involved in the event then we are still looking for Deanery Organisers in Axholme, Yarborough (Brigg area), Manlake (Scunthorpe), Christianity (Lincoln), Grimsby & Cleethorpes and East & West Holland (Boston area). You do not need to be involved with your local church ~ you could be a member of your local cycle club or just someone who is passionate about the architecture of churches.
Deanery Organisers are vital contacts between parish organisers and the County Organiser. With over 700 churches, the event would be impossible to run without the help of these volunteers.
If you would just like to take part in the event and join the many people who had great fun cycling, walking or riding between out beautiful churches, then please contact either Sarah by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or Nicholas Ridley (County Organiser) on 01476 550055 for more information on this year’s event.
