Classic motorcycle club boosts air ambulance fund

On a Saturday evening in mid-October, Wells Classic Motorcycle Club held its 19th Annual General Meeting, presentations and social evening at the Britannia Inn, Wells, Somerset.

In itself, that’s nothing unusual for a motorcycle club, but the highlight came when, at the end of the meeting, members were joined by the deputy mayor Phillip Welch and his wife, and marshals and helpers from the ninth annual Tortoise and Hare Run, who joined with members to present the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance with another massive donation of £3800 from the club’s Tortoise and Hare fund.

This large donation was made possible by the massive support received from sponsors, brochure advertisers and entrants, along with much work by many club members, to whom huge thanks were given.
