Bike 地 Hike - Saturday 12th
The annual Bike 地 Hike offers the opportunity to raise
money both for our church/chapel and for the Beds. & Herts.
Historic Churches Trust.
Every ｣1 that we raise in sponsorship, 50p is returned to us.
This makes the Bike 地 Hike a very effective way to raise funds
for our church. All the organizing is done for us; all we have to
do is to take part!
The other half of the sponsorship money goes to the Beds & Herts
Historic Churches Trust which is distributed, in the form of
grants, to local communities struggling to raise funds for vital
repairs to their church or chapel.
Taking part involves being sponsored for either cycling or walking to visit other
churches (you plan your own route). We also need "welcomers" between the hours of 10am and
6pm and welcomers can also be sponsored.
Last year the Bike 地 Hike raised almost ｣100,000 for the churches and
chapels of Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire. Our own church raised ｣XX,
raise even more this year? [alternatively: Our church can benefit from this fund
raising event if you will help.]
So what are you waiting for? Enjoy a pleasant day cycling or
walking to churches and chapels in our area, or welcoming our
visitors, and at the same time boost our church痴 funds as well as
those of the Trust.
Your can use JustGiving to help you raise sponsorship money, along
with the normal sponsor form. By encouraging the use of gift aid,
you can further increase the funds available to the Trust.
