The Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance is calling on motorcyclists
The August 18 event will take place as part of the Brackley Festival of Motorcycling in order to help raise vital funds needed to keep their lifesaving helicopters flying.
Northamptonshire based motorcyclists will begin their convoy from Triumph Motorcycles, Wellingborough and will then follow a police-approved route to the Brackley Festival of Motorcycling.
Stuart Wilkins, fundraising co-ordinator for the Northamptonshire area of WNAA, said: “This is a fantastic event for motorcycle enthusiasts across the country to get involved in and we can’t wait for people to get involved. Not only do they get to ride in convoy to the renowned Brackley Motorcycle Festival, they’ll also be helping to raise money for our vital cause.
“Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance receives no Government or National Lottery funding, so by signing up to join in the Ride Out, at just £10 each, riders really will be helping to make a difference to people’s lives – last year we flew to almost 1,000 rescue missions, including 102 motorbike incidents.
“We can’t wait to see as many people as possible signed up for what is to be a stand out event in the motorcycle calendar.”
Riders can sign up on the charity’s website www.theairambulanceservice.org.uk/rideout or by phoning 08454 130 999.
