Saturday 14th September 2019 10:00Friends of Kent Churches: Ride and StrideSee: https://www.rideandstrideuk.org/counties/kent/ The Friends of Kent Churches Sponsored Bike Ride and Walk (part of the national Ride+Stride) takes place on the second Saturday in September each year. This year it will take place on Saturday 14th September 2019. Participants plan their own routes with the assistance of a printed list of churches and chapels open on the day. There are usually some 700 of these places of worship open, scattered right across this big county, and wherever you go you’ll be assured of a warm welcome. Don’t worry about carrying lots of food of drink as plenty is available at the churches or lots of pubs en route! Ask your relations, friends and colleagues to sponsor you – so much per church or chapel visited between 10am and 6pm on the day. This is recorded on a special sponsor form. Please ask them to tick for Gift Aid if they are tax payers; this increases their donations by 25% with no cost to them. Welcoming visitors 50% of sponsorship money raised goes to the church or chapel chosen by the participant, with the other 50% going to the Friends, who use it to help the most needy churches in the County. Last year’s Ride+Stride raised over £113,000 including Gift Aid, and this represented half of the total income of the Friends of Kent Churches.. There were nearly 800 riders and walkers, who visited an average of 12 churches each. In addition, over a hundred of those who sat in churches to welcome visitors were themselves sponsored. Since it started, Ride+Stride has raised over £3 million in Kent and we hope to add to this total in 2019. T-shirts and polo shirts are available to purchase. Cyclists can purchase Bicycle Flags including pole and bracket for the ride as a fun way to show your support and raise awareness. To register as a participant, for further information on what’s happening in Kent, or to request a sponsorship form from your Ride+Stride Organiser click on the link or send us an email. Otherwise, you can donate here Thank you.
