Thank You The Chilly Willy Riders

Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance are saying a big thank you to bikers and scooters who raised an amazing £2783.87 on their recent Chilly Willy Ride.

It was an amazing sight to see over 270 bikers and scooters leaving All Seasons Cafe yesterday ( Sunday 7th January). All riders were raising money for the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance.

The ride took a circular route down to the outskirts of Bedford, through Olney, back up to Northamptonshire, before a straight run back down the A45 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 Biker Community for organising, and making it happen. In particular, thanks goes out to 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 season Cafe and all their staff.

Heather Burton & Richard Durham are strong supporters of the Air Ambulance charity and have attended these events for the last 5 years. They were overwhelmed by the fantastic amount raised and received on behalf of the charity.

Over the last 5 years the Chilly Willy Ride-outs have raised over £6,300 for the local Air Ambulance, which is truly amazing, so thank you to everyone involved.

The date is already in the diary for the next event and all bikers/scooters over 125cc are welcome to take part. Spectators are invited to come along too on Sunday 6th January 2019. Riders will be leaving from All Seasons Cafe.

Thank you again from everyone at the Air Ambulance – without you, we wouldn’t be able to continue our lifesaving work.
