The 363 MCC Motorcycle Club holds its Crowning Around Bike Show every year with the aim of raising as much money as they can for their chosen charities.

This year the total of £4,250 raised at the show went to the East Anglian Air Ambulance, East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices and Littleport youth group The Port.

The club has been delivering the large cheques to the charities in person: £2,000 has gone to the East Anglian Air Ambulance, £1,750 to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice and £500 to The Port.
