Karin’s Pedal Power for Ride + Stride


Saturday 8th September 9:00am


St Lawrence and St Peter & St Paul

We are lucky to have such active and committed people in our parish. Karin Dawe is once again cycling to raise money for St Lawrence, and St Peter & St Paul during the 2018 National Churches Trust Ride + Stride event on 8th September. Karin’s route covers 12 miles, a small area which is packed with 28 churches from Whytham and Wolvercote through Oxford and the city churches to St Frideswide, St Margaret and back to St Peter & St Paul Botley. You can sponsor her ride, more information below.

How to Sponsor Karin

You can either sponsor Karin for completing the whole route, or by the number of churches she visits by one of the following.

  • Completing the sponsorship form Karin will take to St Lawrence and then to St Peter & St Paul.
  •  Email karindawe@gmail.com with your name, address, postcode and the amount you would like to sponsor her.

Where does the sponsorship money go?

Karin will collect the sponsorship money from you at the end of the ride. Half the money goes to the National Historic Churches and the other half is divided between St. Lawrence and St. Peter & St. Paul.

What is Ride + Stride?

It’s a sponsored bike ride or walk in which people all over England walk or cycle between churches, exploring and enjoying the countryside from Cornwall to Northumberland. The money they raise helps to save historic churches, chapels and meeting houses for future generations by helping to fund urgent repairs and the installation of modern facilities.  In the past they have contributed funds to a number of the benefice churches so Ride + Stride is a good way to lever more money into the system to help us look after our local churches.

I fancy raising money this way too

We have four churches in our benefice and two parishes, so if you would like to help raise money the Ride + Stride site can tell you how http://www.rideandstrideuk.org/how-to/
