The Friends of St Laurence

Ride & Stride for Churches

Published: May, 2021

Saturday 12th September 2020

There was no better time for the cyclists and walkers
of Warborough and Shillingford!

On a warm and sunny 12th September a team of cyclists and walkers joined the Oxford Historic Churches Trust 2020 Ride + Stride to raise sponsorship money by visiting churches in the South Oxfordshire area. The team visited some 20 churches and raised £3750 in sponsorship money. Half of this will go OHCT and half to the Friends of St. Laurence Church to support our much-needed restoration programme.

Over the past 55 years, the Trust has given more than £3.5 million for the renovation of Oxfordshire’s church buildings. Last year was exceptionally good, with a record amount being awarded in Grants. That would not have been possible without the significant income stream from the Annual Sponsored Ride+Stride for Churches. Last September, Oxfordshire’s Ride+Striders raised over £112,000, up 13% on 2018.

For further information, please contact Michael Watkins ( or Martyn Drury (, the coordinators of the event for St. Laurence Church, Warborough.

Thank you to everyone for your enthusiasm and generosity in supporting this year’s Ride+Stride!
