This story is over

More than 150 motorcyclists rode their bikes through Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire on Sunday, April 10 to show their support for the counties’ air ambulance.

The crowd of bikers set out in single file from the Waddington Aircraft Viewing Enclosure (WAVE) Sentry Post Snack Bar on the A15 and returned to the base at 2.45pm after having a break on the banks of the River Trent at Gunthorpe.

Bikers donated £10 to take part in the Ride to Save Lives event, the first ride of its kind organised by the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance to raise money to help keep the ambucopter flying.

Faye Nam, community fundraiser at Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance, said: “We greatly appreciate the biking community’s continuing support of the air ambulance.

“Our ambucopter attends on average between two and three missions a day, and each mission costs the charity approximately £2,100.

“It is only thanks to the generous support of our local communities that our angel in the sky can keep flying and saving lives.”
