Ride and Stride is a national event held every year on behalf of the National Churches Trust. It is a sponsorship scheme whereby roughly half of the money raised goes to your local church – in this case St Mary’s, Olveston. Our area is served by Gloucester Historic Churches Trust who have been very kind financially to St Mary’s in recent years.

The idea is to walk, or cycle, or go on horseback (!) to nearby churches.

Paul Harrod is our local organiser and this year we start at St Mary’s at 10am (finishing around 4pm) on Saturday 14th September. Full details from Paul.
