IF you were wondering what the roar of engines was about in St Mike’s on Sunday, it was the Hospice Ride for Remembrance.

Every year bikers on the South Coast get together to hold the fund-raiser and proceeds go to the South Coast Hospice.

Bikers pinned white doves onto a remembrance banner in memory of loved ones they lost.

Kenny Brown started the day’s proceedings with a prayer, followed by a moment of silence.

Inflatable white doves were then released in memory of biker brothers and sisters.

The last set of doves released were for care-givers and Hospice staff.

“The event was well supported by bikers and ended with a breakfast at Douglas Mitchell Sports Grounds,” said fund-raising co-ordinator, BT King.

A total of R4 550.60 was raised.

Hospice thanks everyone who made the event a success.
