MOTORCYCLISTS have handed over £1,000 to cancer research after a fundraising ride.

Parkeston MCC presented the money to local representative of the Cancer Research charity, Darren Couchman.

The popular motorcycle club raised money for the charity at the Parkeston Railway Club from the second Bikers Against Cancer motorcycle run and show event earlier this year.

Spokesman Trevor Dowling said: "The motorcycle club were given a certificate of thanks that will be hung with pride at the railway club.

" We would like to thank all the local bikers who helped to raise money for this worthy cause."
