The Prince of Wales Certificate

The Prince of Wales, patron of the Norfolk Churches Trust has kindly agreed to sign a certificate bearing the name of the individual who has raised the most amount of money for the Bike Ride. The certificate is awarded to a different person each year and is presented in the spring following the autumn event. This year the certificate has been awarded to Mary Heather, who at the age of 93 has raised a staggering £25,700 for All Saints Church, Burnham Thorpe!  She has been a long term supporter of the Bike Ride and a church warden for 25 years.  She was presented with the certificate on Sunday 11th July by The Lady Dannatt MBE, HM Lord-Lieutenant of Norfolk.

Wall of Fame

The ten people who visit the most churches by bicycle on the day of the Bike Ride will have their name recorded on our Wall of Fame. Last year first place was a draw between Susannah Towning and Amanda Marshall who visited 72 churches! An extraordinary effort on both their parts.

Don’t forget that we are offering £1,000 prize for the most improved church. In other words the church which shows the most improvement in its Bike Ride fundraising compared to last year. This is a chance to make a substantial difference to your church’s finances in a year when many have suffered through lack of money from the Collection plate.
