BIKERS RAISE THOUSANDS FOR CHARITY

Bikers from all over the country attending last Tuesday's "BIKEOI" raised $3,264.70 toward a new Emergency Response ambulance for the Wellington Free Ambulance.

Westpac Trust Stadium staff stood on the Fran Wilde Walk wearing Hi-Vis vests and carrying ever heavier buckets as motorcyclists parked and walked past the collectors on their way to Parliament.

Organisers say that it is an approach they would like to continue at future protests with proceeds going to relevant local charities.
