SCOOTER enthusiasts from a Rotherham club gathered to award three charities with more than £2,000 raised from an event earlier this year.

The Camping in Catcliffe event in May saw 1960s Lambrettas and Vespas with their proud owners and their families stay overnight in fields next to the Waverley Pub in Catcliffe in aid of the three charities they support.

Organisers presented three cheques of £700 each to Sheffield Children’s Hospital, Cystic Fibrosis Trust and Alzheimer’s Society.

Neil Hibbert, aged 48, from Rotherham Scooter Club, said: “It’s fantastic that we can come together with other riders from across the UK and help raise funds for such valid causes.

“The event is one of the biggest of its kind in the UK and we are now celebrating its sixth year.”

The club is already planning next year’s Camping in Catcliffe event, but also have a number of fundraisers before then including a coast-to-coast rally in a few weeks’ time.

Four members from the Rotherham club, including Neil, will join 500 other like-minded scooter enthusiasts from the national Lambretta GB club and rally from Redcar, near Middlesbrough, to St Bees in Cumbria.
