We are taking part in Ride+Stride on September 10th!  The Cathedral team would love your support - http://www.justgiving.com/teams/salcathridestride.  We would be grateful for any help you can give us.  Thank you!

Why not join us on the day?

Taking part in Ride+Stride, is an excellent way to combine raising money for us, or a Church in your parish, whilst spending an enjoyable day out exploring the local area on foot, bike or horseback, and visiting some of Wiltshire’s rich heritage of churches and chapels. 

Half of all money raised goes to Salisbury Cathedral, if you choose us, and the other half is used by the Wiltshire Historic Churches Trust to award grants to churches with special maintenance needs. 

Last year Ride+Stride raised over £52,000 for Wiltshire’s churches, and 34 churches benefited from Wiltshire Historic Churches Trust grants, ranging from £400 to £10,000.

You don’t have to be young and super-fit: just strolling between one church and another can constitute participation in Ride+Stride, and most sponsors are generous enough to reward even the shortest of journeys.  For the more competitive, however, there are cash prizes for the best achievers, including several for under 16-year-olds, and parishes which mobilise large numbers of participants can compete for the Brooke Cup (plus £500) and Junior Group Cup for the under-18s (plus £100).

Anyone can join in on September 10th.  Plan a route that suits your energy levels or get ideas from http://www.visitwiltshire.co.uk/things-to-do/activities/cycling . The chances are very high that you will enjoy the day!
