Last month, Kate Hicks Beach, Kevin and Jane Lynch, Anne Marie Fisher, Helen Cuthbertson and David Hicks Beach (for most of the journey) set out at 9am on Ride & Stride Saturday to raise funds for the Gloucestershire Historic Churches Trust. It was a glorious day for the trip, and they cycled for over 23 miles around the benefice, visiting 13 churches in the process.

Last year, taking a different route, they made a county-topping £2,870 for GHCT! It’s not too late to donate using the link:
https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/st-john-the-baptist-church-coln-st-aldwyns or David can come and collect your kind donation in a COVID-safe way. There is also a collection box and Gift Aid form at Coln Community Stores. If you need any help with the methods of donating, please telephone David on 01285750482 or email d.hicksbeach@btinternet.com

Congratulations to everyone who took part in the Ride & Stride for our CHEQS communities, whether by walking or cycling, by helping with the churchyard cleanup in Quenington, or other sponsored activities during the day.
