The Friends of DHCT are our core supporters. They further the aims of the Trust by an annual subscription which enables them to attend our various events, including our celebrated Church Crawls. They help to run our major fund raising event Ride + Stride and, over time, they become more closely involved in our by volunteering to be Parish Organisers, Deanery Representatives and even Trustees. Some very generously remember us by making a bequest in their Will. For a subscription of £15 (or more if you wish) you can become involved in the work of DHCT – please consider completing the application form. (right click to download file)
