Sitting proudly in a side-car, one dog certainly looks the part as he joins more than 1,000 riders for a Mods and Rockers trip Hunstanton.

Bikes and scooters met in Wisbech on Sunday morning before heading to Tesco at the Hardwick Industrial Estate in King’s Lynn.

The convoy set-off for Hunstanton and gathered on The Green where reggae music was provided by the musicians of the band Scooted ‘n Booted.

The event was organised by Ruth Whitehurst and her husband Paul, who run The Workshop recruitment agency in Wisbech.

The couple began arranging the annual trip ten years ago to raise money for the Cambridgeshire branch of the Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association.

But after achieving around half of last year’s total, Mrs Whitehurst said she was not sure she would organise another event next year.

She said: “I’m really deflated.  It was an excellent day, but I am really disappointed that we raised over £460 from bucket collections, as we raised more than £800 last year.”

Despite her disappointment, Mrs Whitehurst said there was still the demand for another Mods and Rockers event to be held in Hunstanton next year.

She said: “It was a lovely day, and everyone rode safely.  I will see if I can do it again next year.”

Through their fundraising, Mr and Mrs Whitehurst have raised more than £20,000 for MND.
