Revving up for a good cause
A funeral service operative has helped organise a charity motorbike display in North London for the ninth successive year.
Steve Barron, from Dignity-owned J H Kenyon, teamed up with pal Nick Gooddall to coordinate the display in aid of Grangewood School, a day school for primary-aged children with severe learning difficulties.
He also got support from his colleagues at J A Massey & Sons in Harrow, who provided plaques and trophies for the winners and helped out with the activities.
Over 60 bikes were on display, as well as a hog roast and entertainment, raffles and a tombola. All exhibitors were charged a small fee and donation buckets passed around. The event raised a fantastic £2,100.
“We are simply a bunch of old bikers who get together once a year and ‘try to do our bit’ for charity,” said Steve.
Funeral arranger Sophie St George is pictured sitting on the ‘best in show’ bike, with (l to r) Steve, Nick and a friend.
