The Galloway Motorcycle Club Support Of Poppy Scotland In Their Centenary Year

The Galloway Motorcycle Club are delighted to be supporting their chosen charity for 2021, poppyscotland in this, their centenary year.

The Road Run section of the Club have taken the 1921 Poppy Pledge and planned a number of road runs covering 1,921 miles with the express aim of raising at least £1,921 for poppyscotland. Raising this amount would be a fitting tribute to our Armed
Forces Community.

The first of the planned road runs is on May 16th and fittingly will start at the Memorial Garden, Wallaceton, where a newly erected sculpture of a poppy has been embedded in the wall of the garden. Nine runs in total are planned covering most of Dumfries and Galloway and Arran, taking in as many War Memorials as possible. They will take place from May to October.

The Galloway Motorcycle club invites all riders, whether you are a Club member or not, to join us in our pledge to complete 1,921miles. It doesn’t matter if you can’t complete all the runs. We welcome all riders to join us in whichever way they can to help us achieve our 1921 Pledge.

You will be asked to complete an entry form at the start of each run and to make a donation In support of Poppy Scotland. Sponsorship forms are also available should you be able to encourage friends and family to support you.

A JustGiving page has been set up for those wishing to make donations that way. The Club will also be hosting fundraisers at supermarkets across the region where Poppy Scotland donation tins and merchandise will be used.

The Club would like to thank all those who have sponsored the runs and John Fergusson for the use of routes, maps and directions taken from his book ‘The Motorcyclist’s Guide to Scotland’ published by Tarmap.
