WHEELS FOR TROOPS

"Wheels" was established following my eldest sons tour of Afghanistan in 2012.

He was keen to mark his Battalions safe return and remember those who had paid the ultimate price. It followed that after buying a Harley that this was a motor bike ride out. The date was fixed and a route set. On the day it poured with rain but approx. 30 riders turned out and a great day was had by all and much needed funds were raised for military charities close to our family’s hearts. The ride was so much enjoyed that we were asked to repeat it the following year… much larger numbers attended and more money raised.

2014 saw a much smaller event due to our family’s circumstances but money was still raised for the Poppy Appeal. Having now regrouped the time has come for us to move this event up a level and support and thank the military through supporting the tireless work of these groups.

Wheels for TroopsWheels for Troops is now heading towards it fourth annual event, to be held on Saturday 4th July 2015 within Surrey.

Wheels is a not for profit group who aims to support those members of the community who are or have served in the three UK forces. We will also support those who are physically and mentally injured, their families and the families of the bereaved. This is achieved through the promotion and monitory support to some of the invaluable smaller military charities.

This is done through our annual Motorbike Ride and Family event, which this year is being held. on Saturday 4th July. The Ride out will commence in Tunnel Road Reigate and after 25 miles it will culminate the Family event at a Redhill Memorial Park. Here there will be fundraising stalls, food and drink, as well as some rather special entertainment. The details of the later will be release once confirmed. With the support of three local councils, it promises to be a fun filled and successful day.

The day will start from at 10am in Tunnel Road Reigate where the riders their bikes and supporters will enjoy a warm welcome of bacon butties and coffee, being available from The Market Stores. The ride out will set off at 11am prompt and follow a route through Epsom and Ewell followed by Mole Valley before finally returning home to Reigate for an afternoon of entertainment. The ride will be fully marshalled by Volunteers from SERV, assisted by riders from the Royal British Legion Riders Branch.
