On Saturday 14th September, Andy Hamilton cycled on a Pilgrimage to Tewkesbury Abbey on behalf of St Cyr’s for the Gloucestershire Historic Churches Trust.
It was a beautifully sunny day for a great ride that included a many new churches to visit. Starting at 09:30 am, He visited 40 churches (incl Gloucester Cathedral) in a total time of 9 hours and 10 minutes (actually cycling 141 km, or 8 miles, in a moving time of 6 hours and 30 minutes!).
Andy would like to thank all of the very generous sponsors who have motivated him to undertake this challenge – a sponsorship of over £ 300 has so far been pledged to the trust, of which half will automatically come back to St Cyr’s. Any additional contributions will be warmly welcomed and please could any sponsorship money that is now due be paid by the end of the month?
St Cyr’s also welcomed at least 8 visitors Riding and Striding during the day, and this has helped to keep us visible within the Gloucestershire Historic Churches Trust.
