Support our Ride & Stride

A group from St Mary’s will be taking part in the Cambridgeshire Historic Churches Trust (CHCT) Ride, Drive and Stride event on Saturday 10th September.  Some cycling between local churches and starting off from St Mary’s during Coffee & Cakes;  others walking between churches in Cambridge.  All keeping up the tradition that has been so well established and supported at St Mary’s by Ron and Ken (to name but two).

It is a sponsored event.  Half the money we raise goes to CHCT and half directly to St Mary’s.  CHCT is any organisation that gives grants to churches undertaking restoration and improvement work – something very relevant to our current situation

If you would like to join in and cycle or walk, please see Anne Carter.

If you unable to join us on the day, then please consider sponsoring us.  There is a sponsor form at the back of church or you can sponsor us online using the following link    https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Buckden-bikes
