DON the leathers, rev the engine and get out on the road to help the hospice.

St Andrew’s Children’s Hospice is inviting motorcyclists from all parts of the county and beyond to join them for the 9th Annual Motorbike run and help them set Lincolnshire roaring to the sound of hundreds of engines.

This year’s run takes place this Sunday, September 4, starting at Willingham Woods, Market Rasen, and organisers are hoping it will be the biggest and best yet.

Main organiser of the event, Michael Lee of the Louth Friends Group, said: “In previous years around 300 bikes have taken part and it would be great if people joined us again this year.

“All money raised by the event goes directly to the Hospice, which provides care for children and young adults from across the county who have a progressive life limiting illness.”

The entry fee for the run is £4 per person, all of which goes directly to the Hospice. Bikes may join at the start or at any of the stop off points on the route.

The run will set off from Willingham Woods at 12 noon and head for Arties Mill on the outskirts of Brigg.

The bikes will leave Arties Mill at about 1.15pm and travel to Nettleton Lodge, (the pub in the wood) at Caistor.

From there, at around 2.15pm, the bikes will set off for their final destination, The Royal Oak (The Splash), at Little Cawthorpe near Louth for a barbecue.

There will also be the opportunity to bid on a pair of VIP tickets for a British Superbikes event and win some super prizes in the grand raffle.
