Motorbike group completes ‘classic’ fundraiser


Boundary 500 Motorcycle Group has completed a Lakes Classic Challenge that saw 40 riders take to the roads to raise money for the Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS). Members of the Boundary group visited various points within the Lake District covering around 130 miles. The event was on 24th August and saw an array of two wheeled motorcycles and tricycles, both old and new taking part. The start and finish was at Oily’s Pub, in Cumbria, and the route took in some of the beautiful scenery that the Lake District National Park has to offer, with stop-offs at Holmrook, Penrith, and Keswick. Brian Laverick, Boundary Group chairman, said:  “We are working very hard organising challenges that are located both in the United Kingdom and Europe.

Brian Laverick, Boundary Group chairman, said:  “We are working very hard organising challenges that are located both in the United Kingdom and Europe. We are very grateful to Warwick Muir the owner of Oily’s Restaurant at Winscale for again hosting the event. The weather was very kind to us and hopefully when the riders return their sponsorship money we will be that bit nearer to raising our half million pound target by the end of this year.”

The Boundary 500 Motorcycle Group was started in June 2006 by retired Police Officer Brian Laverick. The group are dedicated to raising money to support their two nominated charities the Great North Air Ambulance Service and Zoë’s Baby Hospice.

Since the group was started they have now raised in excess of £460,000 in seven years.

The group also has a holiday in France for four people worth a thousand pounds up for grabs. All the entrants who take part in any of the group’s challenges get a free entry into the holiday draw every time they raise in excess of £40. Other prizes available too.
