Please join the Hampshire and the Islands Historic Churches Trust community. We raise funds for Hampshire and the Islands churches to help pay for repairs and improvements to the fabric of their buildings, contents, and churchyards.
We have numerous events throughout the year for Friends - please visit our website for further information: https://hihct.org.uk/membership/
Our main income is the sponsored Ride and Stride event on the 2nd Saturday of September each year. Over 400 churches will be open throughout Hampshire and the Isle of Wight - many with refreshments for you to enjoy. Visit our website on the event: https://hihct.org.uk/ride-and-stride/ or go to our Ride and Stride campaign page on this site to either set up your own participants page for the event or support a participant: https://app.investmycommunity.com/fundraise/hampshire-and-the-islands-historic-churches-trust-3033
