SPONSORED RIDE AND STRIDE
Just over £1,800 was sent to Dorset Historic
Churches Trust, raised by Peter Williams who
cycled 61 miles visiting 42 churches, on what
was one of the hottest days of the year, and
Mike & Michela Metcalf together with David &
Diana Masters who, prior to 9th
September, strode from Blandford to Sturminster.
Very many thanks to all who sponsored them,
especially since DHCT have been so generous with
their financial support for the St Nicholas
ceiling plaster repair project.
