Lampy goes to Lerwick ?
Hopefully most of you are aware of our little jaunt to raise funds for Cancer Research UK (hint 1).
If you?re not sure, or just a reminder, on the 3rd June I?m setting off on a 1959 Royal Enfield W.R. for the Shetland Classic Vehicle Show in Lerwick (7th & 8th June). The idea is to go via the ferry from Aberdeen, on unsurfaced roads where possible, minor roads elsewhere. I?m being joined by Frank Anderton & Les Humphries. They will share back up van driving while the other rides with me, also on a classic bike.
So while you are enjoying the globally warmed balmy British summer, cruising the highways, munching sticky buns and supping tea, we will be wheezing and clunking north (that?s the riders, not the bikes), doing our impersonation of ?Last of the Summer Wine? on tour. Hopefully we will enjoy it and (here comes hint 2) raise lots of money for Cancer Research UK. What ever we raise will help reduce this terrible illness. (Here comes BIG hint) If every biker on or off road, classic of modern, donated the price of a pint (or gallon even) of beer then we could save a lot of suffering. Most of us have watched someone go through cancer.
There is a dedicated website www.lampygoestolerwick.co.uk with details of how to donate or contact me, or you can just ring me on 07989 446131. Several people have already helped and Arthur Lampkin has endorsed the trip. This is an opportunity for us all to help. The three of us are paying our own way, all money donated will go to Cancer Research UK.
Hopefully I can take the mobile ether machine (laptop to ?young? people) & can add things when we get there, but pictures etc will be posted afterwards. So please check on our progress, and do you bit (see the wee hints above)
A huge thank you to all those who have helped or are going to help
