A STEETON-based motorbike club is revving up for another year of charity fundraising.

Members of the Girder Fork and Classic Motorcycle Club decided at the annual general meeting to support three causes.

Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice Manorlands, the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the National Association for Bikers with a Disability will all benefit.

Much of the money will be raised at the annual Big Bike Sunday show, taking place at Skipton Auction Mart on June 24.

"Last year we donated over £4,000 to our charities and it is hoped that figure can be exceeded this year," said club chairman John Hunter.

During the AGM, at Steeton Hall, five awards from last year were presented – three for the best classic bikes on various runs and the others for the rider attending most runs and the member who had contributed most.

The club – which has nearly 100 members – stages a range of activities, including speakers at its meetings and regular runs.

Anyone interested in joining should contact membership secretary Bert Peace on nandbpeace@btinternet.com.

The next main event is on March 23, when motorcycling adventurer Elspeth Beard – who travelled around the world on an old BMW bike – will give a talk.

Tickets are £10, including a pie and peas supper. Non-members are welcome. Contact Brian Sanderson on smartbrian76@gmail.com.
