Motor show in memory of Middlesbrough biker proves to be success for GNAA
A MOTOR show organised in memory of a charity fundraiser to raise funds for the Great North Air Ambulance has been hailed a success.
Colin Toner, of Middlesbrough, has been raising money for the charity since the death of his brother, John, who was killed while on the last leg of a 500-mile fundraising motorcycle trip.
An air ambulance has since been dedicated to John and his name appears on the side of The Guardian Of The North aircraft.
Mr Toner has held the motor show at Middlesbrough's Dormans Club for the past five years, raising more than £12,000 for the air ambulance.
The father-of-two said: “It has been absolutely brilliant. The amount of people, cars and motorbikes here is incredible. It keeps getting bigger and bigger every year and it has been a struggle fitting everyone in.
“Hopefully, we will continue to raise money for the Great North Air Ambulance as the event continues to become more and more popular.”
Exhibits included vintage, sports, custom, race and rally vehicles, while bands were playing rhythmic blues, jazz, rock and pop and there was also trade and craft stalls and a bouncy castle.
