Participants walked or cycled between churches and, sponsored by family and friends, raised thousands of pounds for the charity. In Norfolk and Suffolk, participants plotted their own route to include some of over 800 churches that were open for the event.
They visited as many or as few as they wanted. Sponsorship money will be divided equally between their chosen church and the Norfolk and Suffolk Historic Churches Trusts. The trusts give grants for repairs to churches and chapels.
This year, seven friends from St Edmund’s cycled as a group and claimed to have cycled a combined total of 200 miles, including tackling some quite steep hills. Most importantly, they had good fun whilst visiting 12 churches and a pub.
The latest total of money raised by all the cyclists from St Edmund’s Parish is £650.
