HUNDREDS of motorcyclists dressed as Santa on a charity ride helped raise a massive £25,000 for the Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice.

The Boundary 500 Motorbike Club holds the sponsored Santa motorbike ride before Christmas every year and has increased the amount raised year-on-year.

The club handed over the cheque, for £25,109.21, to the Middlesbrough baby hospice at an event at the Middlesbrough Motor Club yesterday (Sat Feb 9).

Since forming in 2006 the club has raised over £450,000 for the Great North Air Ambulance and Zoe’s Place.
