ALISON Ford, of Route 1066 Cafe on the A21 at Robertsbridge, presented the SERV Bloodrunners charity with a cheque for £500 recently.
SERV volunteers kindly donated their own ‘expenses’ pay of £250, after acting as car park marshals on May Day at the cafe which Route 1066 then doubled to £500 as a thank you to the volunteers for their help and the tireless work they do.
SERV Bloodrunners is a charity run entirely by volunteers who ride their motorcycles, often at their own expense, to deliver blood, organs and other essential supplies for the NHS in support of the ambulance services.
Route 1066 Cafe, which was inundated with over 1,000 bikers heading to Hastings for the annual May Day Run, is under new ownership and is quickly becoming a centre in the area for fundraising motorcycle and car events.
Route 1066 Cafe is helping to raise more money for SERV, RNLI and Armed Forces Bikers through Hastings Bikenites when, on the first Thursday of each month, it is estimated over one hundred motorcycles led by an MSVT pace car, will cavalcade from the cafe through Battle down to Hastings seafront.
