Willingham Woods was packed with bikes last Sunday as a large group of riders turned out for the annual run in aid of Andy’s Children’s Hospice.

Now in its 16th year, the popular event was once again raising vital funds for Andy’s, which provides free care for children and young people with life-limiting illnesses.

For new hospice fundraiser Alison Lark it was her first visit to the event and she was suitably impressed with the turnout at Willingham Woods.

She said: “How wonderful that everyone has turned out on this lovely summer’s day for Andy’s Children’s Hospice.

“There is a wonderful atmosphere and everyone is very friendly.

“I am really looking forward to the day ahead.”

Each rider paid £5 to take part and the route took in Burgh on Bain, Wragby, Bardney, RAF Waddington Metheringham, Woodhall Spa, Horncastle cattle market and Maltby.

More riders joined along the way and the final destination was ‘The Splash’ (Royal Oak) at Little Cawthorpe, where there was a barbecue and raffle.

Among the prizes up for grabs in the raffle were many special motorbike-related items and the top prize was donated by Honda Racing - two VIP hospitality tickets for the three-day BSB Cadwell weekend in 2018.
