Bikers Cove Raise over £2000 for RNLI Queensferry

Lifeboats News Release

The Bikers Cove, friends and neighbours of RNLI Queensferry Lifeboat Station, hosted a Custom Bike Show at the end of July in aid of the RNLI.

Sunday 31st July 2016 saw bikers from all over the country attending an event in South Queensferry to raise money for RNLI Queensferry. The range of motorcycles on display was fantastic, and the day was a huge success with live music and things going on to entertain the whole family.

In total the event raised £2238.07, a truly incredible amount! We at RNLI Queensferry would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at The Bikers Cove for all the hard work they put into organising the fundraiser, with special thanks going to Tricia Sutton and Chas McLeod.
