Whiteknights Yorkshire Blood Bikes is a charity that Vic founded in 2008 whilst undergoing cancer treatment as he noticed a lack of an urgent transportation service for blood and pathology samples, “Out of hours.”
Those attending can either make their
way directly to the crematorium, OR one of Vic’s real desirers, which is fully
supported by his family is for the cortege to include escort motorcycles in
front of and behind the family vehicles.
Remaining motorcycles from the various
groups Vic worked with are being encouraged to form a convoy behind the family
cars for the 5 mile journey to the crematorium. (Vic loved to showboat).
Those attending are asked where possible
to wear their preferred high-vis event jacket, screen blades etc, so the family
get a feel for those in attendance. Convoy line up will be marked blood
bikes then other group representations in any order.
Motorcycles wanting to tag on behind
should congregate ‘ready to roll’ by 12:30 at:
Rookery Lane, Salterhebble, Halifax. HX3 0PZ.
This location is hindered by major roadworks, so allow extra time to get to the
RV point. (Beware of the cobbles
when turning left from Salterhebble Hill, plus its a narrow street and need to
turn round ready to exit).
To assist the family with catering can
those attending the wake please confirm directly with me ASAP. Please
The venue will be confirmed based on
potential numbers attending.
