100 Bikers Set Off From Kilmarnock On Charity Road Trip 2009: 100strong Gang

100 bikers set off from Kilmarnock on charity road trip

A 100-STRONG gang of bikers wearing pink bras and vests set off from Kilmarnock’s Rugby Park last Friday.
The bikers were starting a four-day ride around Scotland called Breast Way Round in aid of MacMillan Cancer Relief. The male bikers wore pink bras over their leathers and the women donned pink high-visibility vests. The 450-mile road trip stopping in Oban, Inverness and Fort William finished at George Square in Glasgow on Monday. Those who took part hope to raise &pound25,000 in memory of a fellow biker who died from cancer last year. Shirley-Ann Barnes, 47, from Kilmarnock, organised the event for the charity which helped her best friend Alyson Porter who died from breast cancer last July. Said Shirley-Ann: “Alyson had to give up work because she was so ill and she got into huge financial difficulties. She actually said the stress from worrying about money was worse than her worries about her illness.
“That was when Macmillan stepped in. The charity gave her a grant to pay her mortgage and she was so grateful.”
