Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Historic Churches Bike’n Hike June 27, 2019

The event was held on a glorious sunny day last September and raised a staggering £113,000.  The Buntingford Deanery raised £11,386, which is a record.  Reed were our star performers and they raised £2,454 including Gift Aid.

The idea is that people are sponsored to drive, walk or cycle to visit as many churches as possible during the day. Half of the money raised is retained by the Trust to help fund repairs to churches and the other half comes straight back to the churches in our Benefice (Barkway, Barley, Reed and Buckland). The event takes place nationwide on the second Saturday and this year is on Saturday 11 September between 9am and 5pm.

The event presents a wonderful opportunity to raise much needed funds for our parish churches, where income has fallen because fund raising events have been limited because of Covid.
