This page describes our reusable banners and boards to advertise the event each year and how you can order them for your church.
We are advertising our annual Ride+Stride event with banners and boards in the style shown above!
If you are here because you have seen one of our banners or boards and would like to know more about Ride+Stride in Gloucestershire and North Bristol, please have a look around this site but do make contact with the County Organiser and we will get you on board promptly. We will put you in touch with the person who looks after the event in your area and we will send you the sponsorship forms you might need. Please see our Contact page for the contact details.
If you are a church who would like to join our 18 churches that have already ordered one of our colourful 6ft by 3ft banners, we would be delighted to hear from you. The price (subsidised by GHCT) is £35. The idea is to encourage more participation in Ride+Stride which we hope will raise much needed funds for your church and GHCT. If you get new participants, the banner should pay for itself in no time. People can’t join you if they don’t know about it!
Look out for banners at Christchurch Abbeydale, St Mary the Virgin Berkeley, Bourton-on-the-Water Baptist Church, St Andrew Churchdown, St Stephen Cinderford, St Michael Dowdeswell, St Mary and Corpus Christi Down Hatherley, St James Dursley, St Mary the Virgin Dymock, St Peter Frampton Cotterell, St Catharine Gloucester, St Peter Haresfield, Longhope Baptist Church, St Michael and All Angels Mitcheldean, North Nibley Congregational Church, St James the Great Saul, Holy Trinity Stroud and All Saints Turkdean. Thank you all for being the first group of churches to promote the event in this way.
Instead of the large flexible banners, some churches prefer the more rigid boards. Our 5mm foamex boards are described as “lightweight, flexible, versatile extruded PVC sheet. They are waterproof and can be used inside and out and have a fairly smooth finish. Ideal for exhibitions, events, shop signage. They can be glued, taped, screwed and nailed.” The price (subsidised by GHCT) is £25. Once again, the idea is to encourage more participation in Ride+Stride which we hope will raise much needed funds for your church and GHCT. If you get new participants, the board should pay for itself in no time. People can’t join you if they don’t know about it!
Look out for our boards at St Mary the Virgin Berkeley (2 of them in the vicinity), St Luke Cheltenham, St Mary the Virgin Thornbury and St Paul Thornbury. Thank you also for being the first group of churches to promote the event with boards.
New lists are now being compiled for banners and board orders. Please contact the County Organiser.
We provide thousands of pounds in grants every year to maintain churches throughout Gloucestershire, but we can only do that with your continued support. Please help us continue our vital work.
