Norfolk Churches Trust Bike Ride
Put a date in your diaries for the Norfolk Churches Trust Bike Ride, back on Saturday 10 September 2022.
Each year the event raises thousands of pounds for churches in Norfolk. In fact, since the event began in 1983, participants have raised over 4 million pounds. Any money raised is split between the church of your choice and the Norfolk Churches Trust.
Even if you’re not a keen cyclist, you can still take part. How about walking, running, driving or using a boat? The main aim is to enjoy your day visiting these beautiful places of worship, raising money as you go.
Why not pack a picnic, bring your family or get a group from church and make a day of it. Look out for more information via www.dioceseofnorwich.org or www.norfolkchurchestrust.org.uk
