A charity gig has raised hundreds of pounds for wounded bikers to travel in style on Route 66.

Riders Action Group staged ‘5 Balls in Hand’ with three live bands and a rock disco at St Thomas Cross pub.

It was the fifth year running the event has been held and it took place last month and featured Tan.trum, MC Pigs and Wildfire live on the outdoor stage, with Imperial BC providing the rock disco inside.

Party-goers enjoyed dancing in the outdoor marque with hot food and free overnight camping available.

The proceeds of £360 from the night were presented by cheque to Mark Lamplough from the charity Bike Tours for the Wounded last week at the pub.

The charity enables wounded service personnel the opportunity to go on an all-expenses paid motorcycle trip on Route 66 on the back of a Harley Davidson.
