The Prince of Wales, who is the patron of the Norfolk Churches Trust, has kindly agreed to sign a certificate that will be given to the individual who raises the most money in this year’s Bike Ride.
In 2016 the certificate was awarded to Mrs Mary Truman (who raised £2,187.50 for Somerleyton Church and £578.75 for Herringfleet Church giving an overall total of £2,766.25), pictured right receiving her certificate from The Rt. Rev Graham James, Bishop of Norwich at Bishop's House.
