Vintage moped procession in support of Sunderland children’s hospice

Ready for the off, a group of Sunderland garage workers and friends led by John Maddison with his sister Tracey Ross on the trike. Most of them riding older mopeds hoping to make it to Barnard Castle and back to raise money for the Grace House Hospice appeal.

Ready for the off, a group of Sunderland garage workers and friends led by John Maddison with his sister Tracey Ross on the trike. Most of them riding older mopeds hoping to make it to Barnard Castle and back to raise money for the Grace House Hospice appeal.

A BIKERS’ charity parade left sunny Sunderland and travelled 38 miles to Barnard Castle on vintage mopeds.

The guys and girls from Southwick and Castletown donated all money raised from their run to the city’s Grace House Hospice.

Tracy Ross, 43, from Seaham, helped organise the ride.

She said: “We had a few stops off along the way because it was such a lovely day. We stayed in Barnard Castle overnight before coming home yesterday.”

This is the first time the friends have taken part in a charity ride, sparked when one of them bought a bike to renovate.

Tracy added: “We decided to do a ride and thought we should raise money for something local to Sunderland.”
