Torquay is where we are based so we thought we had to mention this rather amazing journey that is planned for the end of this month all to benefit the Sue Ryder Hospice.
Young Farmers are preparing to embark on a huge challenge that will see them travel from Yorkshire to Torquay on Freerider mobility scooters!
The challenge is part of their annual ‘Yorkshire’s Greatest Export’ campaign and will raise funds for Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice. Members will tow giant versions of their chosen products for 2012, potatoes and a wool bearing sheep behind the scooters to the Young Farmers AGM on the south coast.
The challenge takes place over 7 days between Saturday 21 and Friday 27 April. Freerider has told the riders that after they finish the challenge, they can auction the scooters off to boost the funds.
Linda Dixon of Freerider told us: “We are delighted to be providing our scooters to the Young Farmers for this exciting challenge. It’s a great way to demonstrate the durability and reliability of our products and we hope that a huge amount can be raised for Sue Ryder.”
