Ride and Stride 2020

29 Sep 2020, 6:30 p.m.

This annual event organised by the Staffordshire Historic Churches Trust raises money both for the Trust and individual churches. It used to be essential to do this on two wheels, but now the scope has been extended not just to two legs but even to powered transport....One member of our congregation walked between the four churches of the United Benefice (more than 12 miles...) and took in Armitage as well for good measure to raise £140, whilst Sarah Elsom and Lucy Leigh drove their 1928 and 1929 Austin Sevens to visit 24 Churches. They raised over £500 - whilst their passengers (who were being chauffeured in aid of St Nicholas, Mavesyn Ridware and St James', Salt) raised £300 and £465 for their churches.
