The day is organised by the Leicestershire Historic Churches Trust to raise money towards the upkeep of the many historic churches and chapels around the city and county. Anyone can take part by walking or riding to visit as many churches and chapels as they can and obtain sponsors to raise money for this cause. In addition, the people recording the visitors in each church can also be sponsored. We need help in the church on the day.
Most of the entrants will be plotting their own route, but there is a walk round 12 churches in Leicester City Centre organised by Michael McQuade, starting from St James the Greater Church on London Road and finishing at Leicester Cathedral. He is inviting members of those 12 Churches, which includes Bishop Street Methodist Church, to join that walk. Any volunteers?
If you would like to be sponsored either to visit churches, or to be on duty at Bishop Street, Mary Gill has lots of information, or look on the Historic Churches Trust website www.lhct.org.uk
