Ride + Stride

A message from the Oxfordshire Ride and Stride County Organiser: Over the last 54 years, Oxfordshire Historic Churches Trust has given in grants several million pounds to churches and chapels of all Christian denominations in Oxfordshire to help maintain them and save roofs, stained glass, wall paintings and much more. Recently we have been supporting the installation of roof alarms for churches who have had, or are vulnerable to, lead thefts and of recent years given substantial grants towards making the buildings more useful to the local community - for example by the installation of kitchens, loos, extra rooms and more.

Much of this has been as the result of funds raised by Ride + Stride - a fun day to get out and about cycling or walking or other activities. We need more people to do support this as often these historic buildings are integral to where people live and in many areas are the only community building which can be used.
