Madingley Parish Church will be taking part in this event on Saturday 12th September and will be open throughout the day. If you would like to sponsor one of our teams please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ride and Stride is an opportunity to raise money not only for the Trust but for your own church, as 50% of the money is returned to nominated churches where asked to do so.
Few historic buildings are as easy to visit as a parish church. They are often the oldest building in a village or town with each stone marking the location where history happened. They are open and welcoming to all, but the buildings require a great deal of care and repair throughout the year which has to met by small groups of volunteers. Maintenance and repair costs range from thousands into the hundreds of thousands, which is beyond the scope of most modern-day congregations. That’s where grant making organisations like the Cambridgeshire Historic Churches Trust step in, but they need your help to raise the vital funds. You can make a difference to the history on your doorstep – churches belong to us all, they are part of our story of life, love, death and everything in between!
