Hundreds of bikers make heroic effort for charity

News | Published:

HUNDREDS of bikers helped to raise more than £4,000 for Holidays for Heroes by taking part in a fundraising motorcycle ride at the weekend.

An estimated 500 Islanders rode out on Sunday in support of the charity, which pays for ex-serviceman to holiday in Jersey.

The impressively large contingent of motorcycles set off from St Catherine at 11 am and travelled along the south coast to St Ouen's Bay.

Organiser Lee Butler said that the group was so large it filled three-quarters of St Catherine's breakwater, taking around 15 minutes to ride past one section of road.
