A North Wales motorcycle club marked a milestone by helping to keep Wales Air Ambulance’s helicopters flying.

The Anglesey Motorcycle Club organised a Charity Chair Run in aid of Wales Air Ambulance, lapping the Anglesey Circuit to raise lifesaving donations.

The club celebrated their 25th birthday, by hosting a unique event for their chosen charity, racing motorbikes with side cars around the Ty Croes racing circuit.

Eifion Jones, Wales Air Ambulance Community Coordinator for Gwynedd, joined the Anglesey Motorcycle Club for the event on March 23, riding in a sidecar for the run.

Eifion said: “As a charity, we receive great support from the motorcycle community.

“We are incredibly grateful that the Anglesey Motorcycle Club named WAA as their chosen charity and held the Charity Chair Run in aid of us.

“The day was great fun, and the outstanding support of the Anglesey Motorcycle Club is lifesaving as it raised donations to help fund our missions across Wales.

“Each mission costs around £1,500 and support like this is vital in helping us to keep our helicopters flying.

“Everyone at Wales Air Ambulance would like to say a huge thank you to the Anglesey Motorcycle Club, who’s support is helping us to raise the £6.5 million needed every year to run our services across the country.”
