A few words from Julia Stevenson,
the founder of the Lee Rigby Memorial Ride
On behalf of the Ride of Respect team I would like to say thank you to each and everyone for supporting this day, all the bikers who rode from near or far, all those who supported us on the route, all those who helped make the day possible.
My thanks also to the Unity Support Riders, qualified riders who safely guided our riders,
the Marshalls at RV points.
Thanks to Ali Scott and all the people who helped sell the merchandise, sales of which go towards buying future stock for all the rides each each year and also pays for such things as flyers etc, with all the left over monies being used by the Ride of Respect Organisation to help veterans when the charities can't help them.
Earlier this year we bought 4 cycles from Halfords and gave them to Veterans living at The Simon Western House to help them on their journey getting back into civvi street. All suffer with PTSD.
We hope to set a pilot scheme up with this all over the country alongside Care after Combat a young charity with Jim Davidson and Simon Western heading it.
And last but not least HUGE thanks also go out to Noel Bowlands at the Asda Distribution Centre at Crossways, Dartford for the use of their parking facilities, it was much appreciated.
Thanks and well done to you all of you.
