Lord Mayor revs up charity appeal

on .

The Lord Mayor of Portsmouth, a keen motorcyclist, is joining fellow riders for a charity ride next month.

The annual event, on Sunday 3 April, will see him ride with other motorbike and scooter enthusiasts from Lakeside, North Harbour to Castle Field in Southsea.

Their machines will go on show at a free event at Castle Field, from 10am­ to 4pm, which will include a best bike contest, displays, stalls, a live Express FM broadcast and refreshments.

It is being organised by the Lord Mayor's Charity Appeal, in aid of local good causes, and the Royal British Legion. There will be a chance to donate to the appeal during the event.

The Lord Mayor, Cllr Frank Jonas, is a keen motorbike rider and a regular spectator at the TT races on the Isle of Man.

He said: "This year's Lord Mayor's Motorcycle and Scooter Charity Ride is building on the success of previous events. It's a fun way of raising money.

"Although my charity appeal is well on the way to hitting its target, we still have more small local charities I'd like to support with a £1,000 donation each. I'm calling on everyone to help make this support a reality for the organisations on our fundraising list."
