We have launched the 2014 SHCT Bike Ride at St Michael's church, Beccles!
Television presenter Susie Fowler-Watt got on a bike for us to help to encourage riders and walkers to start collecting sponsors and planning their route. Also at St Michael's were Patrick Grieve, Bike Ride Chairman and local cyclists including John Buchanan, the local area organsiser and Mark Bee, Leader of Suffolk County Council.
Have you booked the date in your diary? The Suffolk Historic Churches Trust Annual Sponsored Bike Ride is on Saturday 13th September and is our biggest fundraiser. You choose your route and how many churches you visit on your ride, and the volunteers at each church will sign your sponsor form and welcome you with refreshments! Our Area Organisers will have sponsor forms and the list of open churches available in the next week or so. Collect them from your local church or contact the SHCT.
You can also collect your sponsorship via JustGiving. We offered this service two years ago for the first time and it has been popular with riders and sponsors - who have been even more generous with their donations, collected in this way. Just remember to note on your JustGiving Page which church or chapel you would like 50% of your money to go to... and we will do the rest.
