Thank You Chilly Willy Ride 2016
The annual Chilly Willy Ride saw 165 bikers including a volunteer, pilot and critical care paramedic from Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance taking part.
The bikers left All Seasons Cafe, Billing Garden Centre and headed out on a circular route which took them down to the outskirts of Bedford, through Olney then back up to Northamptonshire before a straight run back down the A45 returning to the cafe. It was an overwhelming sight to see so many bikers out raising money. Year on year this event gets bigger and raises even more money for the charity.
Huge thanks to Northampton Bikers Club for organising the event and making it happen, in particular to Rich Moore, Mick for collecting the donations from the bikers, all the marshalls en-route for looking after the bikers and making sure they all had a safe ride and to Julie and Dave from All Seasons Cafe and all their staff.
Richard Durham who rode with the bikers and Heather Burton, volunteers for Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance, were delighted to receive just over £1,200 from the bikers on behalf of the charity. It was an amazing amount raised by the donations from the bikers and customers from the cafe who were at the cafe at the time of the ride out.
The date is already in the diary for the next one all bikers/scooters over 125cc are welcome to take part on Sunday 8th January 2017.
