Still Time to Donato to Ride&Stride 2018 - Donations accepted throughout October to Oxfordshire Historic Churches Trust (OHCT) annual bicycle, horse ride, run or walk. All funds will be split between OHCT and St. Helen's Church, Dry Sandford. Five of us from St. Helen's completed a beautiful 24-mile bicycle route visiting 9 rural Churches. This year's event has more significance to St. Helen's as we face the daunting task of roof and wall repair.
