The Ride and Stride sponsored bike ride and walk raised about £800 on Saturday 9th September. So, with the GiftAid claimed, half will go to the Bucks Historic Churches Trust, and the remaining £450 goes towards St Mary’s Works during 2018.
Throughout the county, it was a glorious morning, but then hard showers later. Inconveniently, the Tour of Britain cut through the Deanery, jamming the roads and villages! Our 2 cyclists and 2 walkers visited 48 churches between them, travelling over 80 miles. A wonderful team welcomed 38 visitors to St Mary’s that day. Congratulations to the participants, our gratitude to the stalwart church welcomers and lots of thanks to the generous sponsors.
A big thank you is also due to Michael himself who organises this for St Mary’s
