Joanne said “It was a fantastic day and couldn’t have made it happen without the help of family and friends who controlled the traffic whilst our huge ride passed through. It was great to be able to do something I love and also raise money for charity at the same time. I would like to thank everyone who contributed to making the day a great success and to everyone who helped with the fundraising, which included a generous donation from Trycare”.
