During 2023, we continued fundraising for both local and national causes in a variety of ways. We pick a charity to support each month, either a local charity, or one with some link to biking and triking. That is, after all, what we do!
From April to October we hold monthly bike and trike meets, with food, a rideout, and plenty of banter! Donations from those attending are collected and at the end of the month are given to the relevant charity. Some of those benefitting this year were the Dalhousie Day Centre in Brechin, the Davidson Cottage in Netherton, the Air Ambulance, and the National Association for Bikers with a Disability.
In May we attended the annual Bon Scott (singer with AC/DC of course!) weekend in Kirriemuir. In return for a donation, we took people on the back of our trike around the town centre – this proved to be very popular! We were joined by a volunteer from the Blood Bikes charity and managed to raise over £500 for them in that weekend alone.
In total during the year we raised £1835 thanks to the generosity of the biking and triking community.
Thank you all!
