Bikers hit the road to support RAF

BikersOver a thousand bikers from across the UK have taken part in a ride out from Shrewsbury to the nearby RAF Museum Cosford to raise funds for the RAF.

The third annual ‘Ride out for the RAF’ saw hordes of motorbike riders travel to raise funds for both the RAF Wings Appeal and the museum.

More than 1,000 people who each paid £5 to take part, met at Shrewsbury Meole Brace Park before travelling with a police escort down the M54 to the RAF Museum Cosford.

The RAF Wings Appeal provides support for personnel and their families. Money from the ride out will go towards projects including the Wings Appeal’s Miles More Minutes campaign, which aims to provide personnel serving overseas with more telephone time to call home.

Pete Brocklehurst, fundraising officer for the RAF Wings Appeal, said: “We’d like to thank all those who took part for their support and to the RAF Museum Cosford for helping to make it such a well-attended and extremely fun event.”
