Ride & Stride
The annual Ride and Stride fund raiser for the Oxfordshire Historic Churches Trust took place on Saturday 12th September and we were delighted to have Annabel Mckeown and family riding on behalf of Westcote Barton church.
It's not too late to sponsor her retrospectively - try https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-display/showROFundraiserPage?pageId=1197989 or (depending on when you are reading this!) contact the rector.
Many other parishioners also took part, but we couldn't resist her cheerful report and photograph:
"What a fabulous, fun ride Imogen, Pixie, Charlie and I had today in brilliant sunshine, seeing the beautiful churches of our Benefice, and zipping past hedgerows iridescent with autumnal hues. Thank you so much to those of you who kindly sponsored us, who gave us a warm socially-distant welcome, prepared the churches and surrounds to look so stunning, and for the chocolate bars and lemonade at Duns Tew (we owe you some ‘reverse sponsorship’ as we indulged here!) We raised £131."
