SCOOTER owners and enthusiasts from all over the North of England rode into Hartlepool for a fundraising event.
Hundreds of people attended the day of games, live music and fundraising at Hartlepool United Supporters Club yesterday.
Organisers from the venue’s scooter club hope to top the £1,600 raised at a similar event last year for Hartlepool-based cancer charity Miles for Men.
Shaun Ryan, of Hartlepool United Supporters’ Scooter Club, said: “I’m overwhelmed with the amount of people who came and the appreciation they have shown to Miles for Men.”
Fellow scooter club member Marty Finn added: “I’m blown away by people’s support from all the scooter clubs around North East and elsewhere. The bands and everyone has given up their time.”
A series of top local bands performed on stage with the entertainment, compered by Hartlepool DJ Les Watts. The line-up comprised of young Hartlepool acoustic singer Charlie Campbell, Running On The Spot, Jason Harrison, Dig The Old Breed and headliners The Clashed.
Miles for Men founder Michael Day thanked the organisers and everyone who attended saying: “You’re all amazing.”
Michael Nealon won Best in Show for his Vespa Legend, and Kevin Crawford claimed the Best Lambretta award.
