GENEROUS bikers have been praised by grateful school staff after they handed over a cheque for £450.

The Misfits Motorcycle Group have been long-term supporters of Catcote School Business and Enterprise College, in Hartlepool, and they recently presented school staff with a further cash boost for youngsters.

Members of the group visited Class 9 to hand over the money which was raised from various fundraising events.

Grateful Year 7 student Caitlin Bell and her classmates were delighted to accept the money and school staff have praised the bikers for their latest gift.

The bikers visit the school every year to see the children.

Wendy Wharton, a teacher at the school, said: “The Misfits have been raising money for this group of students at Catcote School for almost 20 years and they have provided so many opportunities for the students resulting in much happiness and fun.

“The students and staff are deeply grateful to this wonderful group of people not only for the money, which enables them to participate in lots of new activities, but also for the friendship they have with the Misfits who visit the children every year to find out how they are and what they have been doing.”

Barry Currell, a teacher at the Catcote Road school, added: “The misfits have been great supporters of Catcote School for a long time and we want to tell the world about it.”

The Misfits have raised over £100,000 for different charities and good causes.

Group members have regularly appeared on the pages of the Hartlepool Mail in recent years as a result of their kindness and generosity.
