Can you help?
A while back the Boundary 500 Motorcycle Group teamed up with the Alzheimer Society with the intention to fund a ‘Dementia Cafe’ which is to be located within Thornaby New Town Centre.
Well the great news is that there is a strong possibility the Cafe will be opening in the Library at Thornaby New Town Centre in November.
It will be open one day a month and times and dates will be circulated asap.
What we need now are volunteers to help out at the cafe.
The Groups Liaison from the Alzheimer Society is Audrey and she can be contacted on 01642 442030 Please ring her for a chat about what will be involved.
The cafe will be open to anyone who is a carer and those suffering from the condition. A kind word, a cup of tea and shoulder to lean on can be so welcome.
Please pass on details to anyone you can think of that would like to become involved.
It will only be for a few hours one day per month.
Dementia is the new cancer and we desperately need your help. Anyone who has been involved with caring for people with this disability will now that for people to talk to can be such a positive thing.
Please pass on to all your contacts. Together we can make a difference

Dress is smart casual. The main thing is bring a smile.
The seating plan uses round tables which can accommodate eight people although there are a couple of larger tables for Groups of twelve.
If you are going with friends let the people at the hotel know so that when we do the seating plan we will do our best to accommodate who you want to be seated with.
At the very least the seating plan is only whilst we get everyone fed after which you are free to sit where ever.

Members will be aware that since the Boundary 500 Motorcycle Group was started back in June 2006 each year we used to hold a ‘Weekend Event’ whereby members could take part in either the 500 mile ride of the Challenge or the 130 mile Classic.
These event have proved extremely popular and over the years we have raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for The Great North Air Ambulance.
Experience has shown that to arrange these events has called upon the services of members which has required an awful amount of time and commitment.
Experience has also shown that the date that would be arranged was not always convenient for everyone.
To this end the Great North Air Ambulance has now taken over the running of the 500 Mile Challenge and the 130 mile Classic.
This means that these two events can be entered at a time and date to suit you.
Today I met with the Air Ambulance and they have provided a booklet which publicise a number of events one being about the Boundary 500.
This booklet will shortly be posted/circulated.

This is an ideal opportunity for you to become involved in the Groups aims and declarations at a time and pace suited to you.
The relevant section within the Air Ambulance that relates to the event entry forms etc. can be found at the following link.

https://www.greatnorthairambulance.co.uk/…/ch…/boundary-500/

There are a number of events arranged this year and it will be good to see members participating in either of these two events for which the Boundary 500 has become synonymous with.
People have copied our format but these are the real deal.

Dont forget this is an excellent opportunity for you to arrange something. Please post your dates and time on the forum and that way other people can also become involved.

I look forward to your response and many thanks for your continued support.

Everyone is welcome to take part in these events and you do not have to be a member of the Group.

John and Angela Walker, who run Flaxton Caravan Site are the holders of the Boundary 500 World record for how much money has been collected in one of the Boundary’s Air Ambulance Collection Tins. The record stands at £747.69p.
Well Steve Carling who arranges the collecting of the tin from John and Angela has just handed in a tin which contained a NEW BOUNDARY WORLD RECORD OF £816.84p…..Wow how good is that.

Popped the money through to the Air Ambulance and Harriet arranged for this cheque which we will drop off at John and Angelas.

Big thanks guys.
