£3,500 raised by Bikers and Scooters at the Chilly Willy Ride Out 2019

Over 350 bikers and scooters were seen leaving All Seasons Cafe, Billing Garden Centre to raise money for The Air Ambulance Service on Sunday 6th January.

The group headed out on a 42-mile figure of eight route down to the outskirts of Bedford, through Olney then back up to Northamptonshire before a straight run back down the A45.  It was an amazing site to see so many bikers out raising money with this event getting more exposure year on year to raise even more vital fund for this charity.

Huge thanks to Northampton Biker Community for organising the event and making it happen, in particular to Rich Moore and all the Marshalls en-route for looking after the riders and making sure they all had a safe ride and to Julie & Dave from All Seasons Cafe and all their staff. To everyone who took part or spectated thank you all for your support and donations.

Heather Burton & Richard Durham Volunteers for the charity have supported and attended these events for the last 6 years and were joined by other Volunteers from the charity Gemma, Lee, Freddie, Jackie and Mike along with some help from Little Ollie. We are overwhelmed by the fantastic amount which has now crept up to £3,500 raised at the 6th Chilly Willy and received on behalf of the charity. This included a generous donation presented by Mick from RS Components for charity sales.  Over the last 6 years the Chilly Willy Ride outs have raised an amazing amount of just under £10,000 for the local Air Ambulance.

The date is already in the diary for the 7th Annual Chilly Willy Ride out all bikers/scooters over 125cc are welcome to take part and all spectators are welcome to come along too this will be on Sunday 5thJanuary 2020 leaving from All Seasons Cafe.
