Sponsored Cycle/ Walk/ Horse Ride

This annual event, which is organised by Warwickshire & Coventry Historic Churches Trust, will take place on Saturday 9th September.

Participants are sponsored for the number of churches which they can visit between 10.00am & 6.00pm.

Half the money raised goes to the Trust, which is to help churches in the district, and the other half goes directly to the church chosen by the sponsored person.

So far as I know St. Lawrence will not be taking part this year, though it has in the past.  However St. Peter’s Whatcote, which has received valuable financial help from the Trust for the recent tower repairs and for previous repairs to the chancel, will be open and will be manned to welcome visitors.

Cups, which are held for a year, are awarded to those who visit most churches.  There are 3 categories – under 18, between 18 and 54, and 55 years and over.

If you would like to take part, sponsorship forms and lists of churches which will be open may be obtained from Richard Holloway at 3 The Orchard, Whatcote. (tel 680698)
