CONGRATULATIONS EVERYONE… AGAINST ALL ODDS (ie CORONAVIRUS) WE DID IT and raised more money than last year! Thank you VERY much if you polished your fender and drove the roads of Suffolk. What a stunning day!
The annual fundraising event for Suffolk’s church buildings went ahead on Saturday 12 September and now the sponsor money from hundreds of cyclists, walkers, runners and church volunteers has largely been counted, the Suffolk Historic Churches Trust are pleased to announce that the total far exceeds last year’s achievement.
So far, with more money still coming in, sponsorship has raised £150,000, exceeding last year’s total of £128,223.
The Trust is pleased to announce that the Pedal & Drive teams raised an additional £15,000.
Usually over 500 churches take part in the fundraising day which is organised by Suffolk Historic Churches Trust. Not surprisingly fewer churches were open to receive the hundreds of participants, but the average raised per participating church was well up.
Our date next year is Saturday 11 September 2021. We hope to see you then.
If you could not take part but want to give a donation to support the event please do so via JustGiving at: www.justgiving.com/suffolkhistoricchurches
Together we can make a huge difference to preserving Suffolk’s unique legacy of churches and chapels. The Suffolk Historic Churches Trust is an entirely volunteer organisation and 99 per cent of what you raise will go to the fabric of Suffolk’s wonderful array of places of worship.
