In September 2020, the event was held on a glorious sunny day 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).

This year, the event took place on Saturday 11 September and results are eagerly awaited.

The event presents a wonderful opportunity to raise much needed funds for our parish churches, where income has fallen because of the lack of fund raising events during Covid, so please be generous in your support.
