RIDE AND STRIDE 2020
A big 'thank you' to all our generous sponsors who, this year, helped us raise £350.00
for the Oxfordshire Historic Churches Trust. This is the highest amount we have ever
raised for this event in which we have participated for many years now.
As usual, half the amount raised will be returned to our Treasurer in due course.
Once again, thank you all so much for your encouragement and generous financial support.
From Matthew and John, Davenport Road Methodist Church.

The Arcadia Group of retail outlets and yesterday the news that Debenhams (the 242...
