A fundraising bike tour of his homeland Northern Ireland was cancelled last year, but Trevor, 75, kept collecting cash for the school and college at any socially distanced motorcycle events that were possible over the past few months.

Trevor knows a lot about biking events, especially in Ireland, and has a long history of fundraising with his motorcycle.

“I’m delighted to be able to now do this for Woodlands Meed,” said Trevor, adding that he sees how much the school benefits its ‘fantastic’ students when he picks them up.

“I am now 75 years old and feel lucky to be able to share my biking experience with other enthusiastic bikers,” said Trevor.
