The Rugby Independent Bikers held a fundraising barbecue and live music event to help raise funds for children who have long-term and life limiting illnesses.

The money will help the poorly youngsters being cared for by South Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust’s (SEPT) Bedfordshire’s Children’s Community Nursing Teams.

The Rugby Independent Bikers have taken these children to their hearts and raised £1,200 to fund a day out for the children and their families.

The event took place in the garden of St Thomas Cross pub in Rugby and included two local rock bands, DJ and barbecue.

All gave their time free of charge and in between the music there was an auction of motorcycle clothing and accessories as well as a raffle to boost funds.

The Bikers also do an annual Easter egg bike ride to Bedfordshire, donating a large quantity of chocolate eggs to the children and nurses.

The organiser, Barry Mace, said: “I’m passionate about helping these children and their families and all the members of our Biking Group take great pleasure in seeing the smiles on the children’s faces.”
