The Annual Ride and Stride takes place today, organised by the Hampshire & the Islands Historic Churches Trust. Anyone can take part, by cycle, walking, running, on horseback, by wheelchair or even skateboard, and try to visit as many churches as possible, raising funds for the region’s historic churches and chapels.
Participants travel at their own pace and plan their own routes. Half the funds raised go to a church of the participant’s choice. It can make a great day out exploring the countryside and supporting a good cause at the same time.
At the time of writing there are 23 churches in the Whitchurch area taking part, with both All Hallows and the Baptist Church in the town participating.
Sponsorship forms are available off the website below.
