The event held on a glorious sunny day last September raised a staggering £103,000.  The Buntingford Deanery raised around £11,000, 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 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.

This year, the event presented a wonderful opportunity to raise much needed funds for our parish churches, where income has fallen because there have been fewer collections at service and no fund raising after the onslaught of Covid.
