This weekend SorryMate attended the EHAAT ride out (Essex and Herts Air Ambulance Trust). A total of around 4,000 motorcyclists gathered together to raise crucial funds for the EHAAT. Large groups of motorcyclists set off from Ford Dunton at 11 am. They did a whopping 60-mile route to Harwich Green in Tendring. Amid the ride out, the congregation of riders rode amongst other traffic on the busy Essex roads, such as the A127 and the A12 creating a real atmosphere of excitement.
Essex Country Fire and Rescue Department also attended the show
Alongside the Essex Police officers, crews from the Essex Country Fire and Rescue Department also attended the show in support of the EHAAT. During the Family Fun Day, one of the Air Ambulances landed on the field. They allowed members of the public to pose for photographs with the famous red and yellow helicopter that’s key in saving so many lives.
The EHAAT, currently in its 20th year, does not receive any funding from the government or the National Lottery. This means the fundraiser is very important in order to raise money for their crews to be able to reach people in need. Every single mission that the EHAAT crews undertake costs around £2,200, dispatching on average around 6 times a day. This shows just how essential the money raised from events like this is in saving lives across the country.
Bolddog Racing Stunt Team performed a special routine for the event
Due to popular demand, the Bolddog Racing Stunt Team returned with their own special routine. This included motorcycle backflips and freestyle motor cross. Creative bands such as ProtoStereo and Faux Fighters Uk treated families to fabulous performances.
