Cycle to ring the Church bell

Bells will ring in Pulborough again after a sponsored cycle for St Mary’s Church.

The young bellringers of St Mary’s Church in Pulborough have organised a sponsored cycle ride to help raise the £13,500 needed to fix the Church’s broken bell.

Becky Vale, Charlotte Goodman, Esme Vale and Jessica Eaton will be riding approximately 20 miles on the Downs Link Bridleway on Saturday June 9.

The girls, who have been learning to ring at St Mary’s for just over a year, were shocked when they heard how much repair will cost.

Becky said: “I have never ridden 20 miles before but I hope that I will complete the route and raise some money for the bell.”

Any sponsors would be much appreciated. Sponsorship forms are available in the Church or donations can be made online at: http://mydonate.bt.com/charities/pulboroughbellrestoration
