KESGRAVE: Hundreds of bikers enjoyed the spring sunshine to raise more than £2,000 for charity.

The sixth annual Friends United Motorcycle Club (FUMCC) show was staged at the Bell Inn in Kesgrave on Saturday in aid of the National Association of Bikers with Disabilities and the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

Debbie McCallum, landlady of the Bell Inn, said: “It was like Kesgrave had become a metal magnet with anything that resembled a motorbike heading our way.

“There were close to 500 bikes with hundreds of people milling around.

“A lot of the local residents came down with the elderly being nostalgic about Triumphs and youngsters enjoying the shiny bikes.

“It really was a family day with a fantastic atmosphere.”

Prizes were up for grabs for categories including best in show, best vintage, best street fighter, best classic and landlady’s choice.
