Proceeds from The Rotary Club of Washington’s Charity Bike Ride went to The Army Benevolent Fund and Macmillan Cancer Support. Major Eric Ingram, of the Scots Dragoon Guards and Vice-chairman of the ABF, was presented with a cheque from proceeds raised by the riders.

President of The Rotary Club of Washington, Mick Drake, presented Major Eric Ingram with the cheque at The Black Bush, where the Rotary Club meets.
