DONCASTER was turned into a mecca for bikers with a festival dedicated to one of the most famous machines.

Around 100 Harley-Davidson motorcycles rumbled into the borough for the Harley-Davidson Rolling Thunder Gala.

A collection on the day raised £140 for Heatherwood special school, at Intake, the adopted charity of the St Leger Chapter of the Harley-Davidson Owners’ Club.

They later moved on to raise another £245 for meningitis charities at Wroot Village Hall, in North Lincolnshire.

The bikes were at Doncaster Market for the morning, with live music and a DJ to entertain visitors during the day.

Biker Sue O’Grady was among those taking part in the event.

She said: “It was really well attended, and I think it will have been a great boost for Doncaster Market.

“Some people don’t think well of bikers, but I think we can certainly say our group is fantastic for fundraising for good causes.”
