The members of Dorset Knights Scooter Club have raised £700 at their annual charity BBQ, with proceeds this year being donated to CLIC Sargent.
The event was held at The Rising Sun pub near Shaftesbury, and the sun shone on what was a very successful day of fundraising.
The club members were joined by over 100 scooter enthusiasts and locals, whom enjoyed a great day and evening of food and entertainment, all thanks to the Dorset Knights.
About the club
The club, established in 2007, attend rally’s and ride-outs and involve themselves in charity fundraising.
Members of the club hold quite a collection of Vespa’s and Lambretta’s between them, and some of the members have been riding since the early 80’s. Customisations of the scooters include a Betty Boop inspired scooter, a Michelin Man customised scooter, and of course some kept it real with the original mod look!
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Joy Morley said: “We are so grateful to the Dorset Knights Scooter Club for organising this event, and I really want to thank them publicly for their amazing effort.”
Club secretary and one of the organisers Jan Francis said: “I would like to thank all the other scooter clubs that attended, and everyone that helped and donated to make this a great event.”
Everyone is welcome!
The Dorset Knights Scooter Club meets at The Rising Sun every month, usually the last Friday, unless there is a rally on. For more details, please get in touch with Daver on 07903 861 593.
