A group of bikers from North Lincolnshire completed a bike ride across six countries in just six days to reach Benidorm to raise £19,351 for charity.
Leaving Winterton on Honda C90s, John Haynes, Lee Baker, Jonny Miller, Steven Joyce, Matthew Joyce and Jez Teasdale rode in memory of John’s Dad, Rod Haynes, who was cared for at Lindsey Lodge Hospice and Healthcare in March 2021.
John said: “The whole Benidorm Bound fundraiser has been an incredible experience from start to finish. We’ve had some highs, some lows, experienced lots of emotions and met some incredible people, but most importantly with everyone’s kindness we’ve raised an enormous amount of money for Lindsey Lodge in memory of my Dad.
“The staff at Lindsey Lodge gave my Dad and family such loving care during the most difficult of weeks, so I wanted to give something back for all the care, support and amazing work they do.”
On bikes with an average speed of 40mph, the group travelled through Holland, Belgium, France, the Pyrenees, Andorra and Barcelona before reaching Benidorm.
Lindsey Lodge Fundraiser Selina Doyle said: “We are blown away by John and the team’s incredible achievement!
“It looks like they had an amazing time and they have raised a truly staggering amount of money for Lindsey Lodge in memory of Rod.
“On behalf of everyone at Lindsey Lodge I’d like to say a big thank you to John and the team and everyone who sponsored them, every penny raised will go directly to caring for local patients and their families.”
