We give Grants for repair and restoration

Featured Project: Wisbech, St Peter and St Paul

Following on from a major National Heritage Lottery Funded project totalling over £500,000, the CHCT Grant and Loan enabled the PCC to include the Vestry Windows as well.
Our next round of grants will be decided on 6 March 2023. The application deadline is 27 February.

Ride and Stride is our main fundraising event

Thank you to everybody who took part in the Ride and Stride 2022 on the 10th of September. We are glad to report that a total of £19,201 has been raised through everyone’s efforts, up more than £1,100 on the 2021 total.

Most participants nominated their local church to receive half the funds they raised and £9,113 has now been paid out to 35 churches .

Other people nominated the CHCT to receive all the money they raised . Altogether this means that £10,088 has been raised towards the 2023 grants budget of the Trust.

Letters of thanks will be sent to parish organiser, by email, before Christmas.

We look forward to you joining the Ride & Stride next year on Saturday 9th September 2023.
