Run To The Wall
On this next Saturday, the 10th October 2009, the Ride To The Wall charity motorcycle event will be taking place.
The aim of the event is to support and raise funds to support the families of troops killed in all conflicts since World War II by maintaining the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire. The meeting point is Drayton Manor near Tamworth, and overnight camping is available along with the usual facilities. The memorial service will be read by Lionel Fanthorpe and this time the RAF will be providing a Spitfire flypast as well.
This is the only event of its kind which gives motorcyclists in this country the opportunity to show the respect that the members of the Armed Forces deserve, and raise money for the upkeep of the National Memorial. More details and online registration are available at www.rttw.org.
