 Saturday 9th September – Annual Ride & Stride

Once again we are taking part in this annual fundraising event to raise funds for church repairs across Oxfordshire – half the money raised will go to St Anthony of Padua. Last year (and in pouring rain!) the youngest participant was 3 months and the oldest was 94 years – so all are welcome to take part.

You can support in three ways:

Take part:

Pick up a sponsorship form from the back of church; visit the new website at https://ohct.org.uk/ride-stride/ or contact Bob Donaldson or May MacPherson for further details.

Sponsor a Strider:

We know that those taking part will welcome some sponsorship (or you can make a donation via the website above)

Be a welcomer:

Volunteer to welcome riders and striders who come to St Antony of Padua’s church on the day.

3rd December, Sunday: Christmas bazaar.

Further details will be available in September when we will be collecting any unwanted presents, bottles, etc. Thank you.

 Cake Sale

A Cake Sale will take place every first Saturday/Sunday of the month just after Mass, at the back of the Church, to raise funds for the Church. Please feel free to take a muffin and donate whatever you would like. Thank you.
