A children’s hospice is calling on bikers to join them on their Annual Charity Motorbike Run to help children and young adults with progressive life limiting illnesses.

The motorbike run will take place on Sunday, September 1, to raise money for St Andrew’s Children’s Hospice, which provides care for children and young adults up to 25 years of age from across the whole of Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire.

Organisers are sending out a plea to motorcyclists from around the County - and beyond - to help them in their quest to set the Wolds roaring to the sound of hundreds of engines and raise much needed funds for the Hospice.

‘This will be the 12th Motorbike run and we are hoping that it will be well supported, and maybe even the biggest so far,” said main organiser of the event, Michael Lee of The Louth Friends of St Andrew’s Children’s Hospice Group.

“We are hoping that the biking community will rally and help us to raise vital funds.

“It would be great if we could get 500 bikes out there.”

The run will set off from Willingham Woods at 12 noon and head towards the first stop at the Durham Ox in Thimbleby, leaving there at around 1.15pm to go on to the Welcome Inn at Skegness.

The final leg will see the bikers set off again around 2.15pm for the final destination, the Royal Oak, (the Splash), at Little Cawthorpe near Louth.

Here, there will be a barbecue, a raffle with around £500 worth of prizes and the opportunity to bid on a pair of VIP Superbike Tickets.

Riders can join the run at the start or at any of the stop off points on the route.

And the organisers stress all makes, models and engine sizes are welcome to take part in the event.

Entry to the run is £5 per bike, payable on the day.
