Jeremy & Carol Scott visit 30 Churches for Bike 'n Hike Day

Beds and Herts Bike 'n Hike Day

A big thank you to all the helpers who manned St Ippolyts Church for this annual event. We had a steady stream of cyclists visiting the church throughout the day, all welcomed the refreshments on offer.

A extra special "well done" to Jeremy and Carol who covered 41 miles to visit 30 Churches and raise money for the Beds and Herts Historic Churches Trust.

 

The Bike 'n Hike is an annual fundraising event organised by Beds and Herts Historic Churches Trust.The aim is to raise money both for the Trust and for the participating churches. Half of every cyclist’s and walker’s sponsor money goes to the Trust and half goes to the church of their choice. Consequently, the more cyclists or walkers who take part, then the greater the direct benefit to that church.
