Supporting LeicesterShire Historic Churches Trust

How our income is raised

Most of the Trust's income is raised through our annual sponsored event, Ride+Stride.

The Trust also receives donations from private individuals and from churches and chapels throughout LeicesterShire, from other charitable trusts, and from legacies.

The Trustees keep an uncommitted reserve of £40,000, and larger legacies are expended over several years, but the Trustees' main aim is to use our income, year by year, to help churches who have applied to us for a grant.

All donations are greatly appreciated and we hope, if you are able to do this, you will allow us to take advantage of the Gift Aid scheme which allows us to claim back tax on your donation (at no cost to you).
