Thanks for your support in attending this year’s ride. We had a good turnout of mostly public. It would be great if those of you who didn’t attend but would like to offer a donation towards the St. Johns, get in touch with me so I can get a Badge to you. Badges are $10.00. We chose this weekend in conjunction with St. Johns to hold our Ambulance Ride as it coincided with the St. John’s appeal week. Next year the dates for their appeal week are changing to an earlier (warmer) time of the year.
We met on a cold morning at the St. John’s brand new facility in Surrey Street, Picton. After a briefing from our St John’s Liaison person Rebecca about how the funds we raise are to be used to buy a new Anatomical Torso Model, we set off following our Police escort.
We rode through to Blenheim arriving at the Blenheim School for a well cooked BBQ. Thanks to our BBQ helpers, Gill McVie, Jeff & Wendy Champion, & Jane Laing.We are still selling the left over badges, but to date of writing this report we have raised around $500.00 for the St. Johns.
Thanks again to those who have supported this very well worth cause.
Ride safe.Nicola Bright #7125
