WHEELS FOR TROOPS

Posted on

0 Comments

Over a hundred bikes are set to take to the streets on July 14th to raise money for our troops.

The event, organised by Mandy Jenkins, who’s eldest son (19) is currently serving in The Princes of Wales Royal Regiment and has just returned from a 7 month tour of duty in Afghanistan, has dedicated vast efforts to make sure our lads and lasses, past and present, get the support they deserve on overseas operations and support is extended to the families they leave behind.

Commenting, Mandy said: “Unfortunately the returning lads and lasses from the latest tour will not be able to have a public show of celebration and thanks within the Regimental Area of Surrey, Sussex, Kent and Hampshire due to Jubilee and Olympic commitments. It has been a hard tour for them with the death of one of their number and several major injuries. But the regiment have achieved their aim and been highly praised, hence the fact we are planning this celebratory event. All money raised during the day will be split between three charities; these being The Poppy Appeal, Tigers Benevolent (Charity Registration No. 1024418)and Support our Soldiers (Registered Charity: 1120684), the three charities are close to my families hearts and have and will continue to support the Tigers in years to come. I’m delighted that Jon and Paula from The Fox Revived have agreed to help us with the event – I’m sure it’s going to be a really special day and one that will raise much needed funds.”

Riders from The Royal British Legion Riders Branch and Support our Soldiers will all join forces on the day, which starts at The Fox Revived, Norwood Hill, near Horley at 11:00 on Saturday July 15th. Riders and non riders can enjoy a warm welcome at The Fox, with bacon butties available before the ride (23 miles around the local area), before returning to the pub for a day of live music, great food, drink, craft stalls, fun and games.

The route passes the war memorial at Shaw’s Corner and at this point the riders will pay their respects to the fallen of past and present conflicts. The salute will be taken by parents of the Fallen from Afghanistan.
