Mr Metcalfe said: “The night went really well. Martin House hospice is a great cause that is very dear to my heart and is a local cause too. I would like to thank everyone involved who helped us, including the town council and police. The idea of having a biker night was mine as bikes are a big hobby of mine. I think everyone has a preconceived idea of bikers but I am sure everyone will agree with me that the night here was a roaring success and everyone had a brilliant time.”

“I am hoping to make this a weekly event at the pub and would like to raise money for other causes, including Yorkshire Air Ambulance.”

During the evening,there was a display of bikes ,and heavymetal music was played by Led Zeppelin, Iron Maidon and AC/DC.

A cheque will be presented to staff at Martin House from Mr Metcalfe on Tuesday April 12. Martin House Children’s hospice in Boston Spa, provides care for children and teenagers with terminal illnesses and costs £4 million pounds a year to run, most of which comes from voluntary donations.
