Motorcycle Meet Up Raises Funds For Derbyshire 2025 Festival

Saturday 13 Jul 2019

Our members have lots of different hobbies and interests and they often use these to meet up socially and raise funds for charities and appeals. A great example of this comes from members of Derbyshire Motorcycle Lodge 9950 who have just returned from a five night motorcycle adventure.

The team explored some of the best countryside this country has to offer, whilst raising money for Derbyshire Festival 2025 appeal through a competition. The competition asked people to ‘guess the total mileage of the trip’. They covered an amazing 773 miles over five days!

There were two people that guessed the closest (only 3 miles out) Helen Parsons guessed 770, and Dave Haigh guessed 776. They decided to split the prize, a case of Festival Beer (courtesy of Derwent Lodge 884) between them.

The trip raised a fantastic £550.00  Thank you to all for your contributions. Besides the exquisite countryside, we're told the highlight of the trip was a visit to the Rosslyn Chapel.
