British Legion - Motorcycles

On Sunday I helped marshal the 2013 Ride of Respect event which saw 2,500-3,000 motorcycles parade through the villages leading up to RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire as a mark of respect for those handling repatriations now that RAF Lyneham has closed and, in so doing, raised thousands of pounds for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

The Riders Branch of the Legion has raised more than £139,000 in each of the last two years by events such as the Ride of Respect and the RBLR1000 which takes place this coming weekend.

It's not too late for you, even with no motorbike, to contribute: you can sponsor Ray Walton and his 11 year old son Ben to ride the 1,000 miles this weekend by visiting his JustGiving page here.
