The eighth annual sponsored Ride and Stride event of Lancashire churches is to take place on Saturday.

Riders and striders are sponsored to visit churches across the county, with cash raised split between the National Churches Trust and a church chosen by the rider.

Nine churches across the Fylde, from Woodplumpton to Wrea Green, and eight in Preston will sign those taking part between 10am and 5pm.

There is no formally set route, and riders and striders can choose their own route to visit as many churches as they wish.

Sponsor forms and maps are available at

Churches which will be open for the event include St Wilfrid’s, The Minster, Central Methodist, St Walburge’s, St Stephen’s, St Margaret’s (Ingol), Fulwood Free Methodist, Broughton St John, Woodplumpton St Anne’s, Elswick URC, Christ Church, Wesham and Christ Church, Treales.
