Ride and Stride Sponsorship Form
List of Churches taking part
We raise funds and provide grants for churches and chapels every year. Our grants help these beautiful buildings to remain in good condition and to be active centres of community life and landmarks of the wonderful architectural heritage of our villages, towns, city and county.
The LeicesterShire Historic Chuches Trust helps Christian places of worship of all denominations with repair and improvement costs. All projects must demonstrate a real need and a well thought-out approach backed up by professional advice.

Ride+Stride is a sponsored event on the Second Saturday in September every year (that’s Saturday 10th September in 2022) and is the single largest source of income for LHCT. It’s also a church open day and it’s a great day for getting out and about in Leicester and Leicestershire.
Keep in touch and find out what's happening at the Trust - which churches and chapels have received grants and what our plans are for Ride + Stride and other exciting events. We'll send a newsletter and Trust updates to your email address.
