Latest News

Each year we dress up in fancy dress and visit some residential homes in the Thornaby area to deliver Easter eggs to the residents. I know a lot of Groups takes eggs to Children’s wards but we feel that the elderly are the forgotten generation and when they see us we always have lots of smiles especially from those that do not receive many visitors.

Breaking News – Boundary 500 Motorcycle Group

Today the Group have announced a New Partnership which will be  with the Alzheimer’s Society.

It is the Groups intention to fund a ‘Dementia Cafe’ which is to be located within the Stockton/Thornaby Area.

The Boundary 500 Motorcycle have since 2006 been involved with a number of charity fund raising events within the community primarily with the Great North Air Ambulance and Zoë’s Baby Hospice where the Group have raised just under six hundred thousand pounds.

Brian Laverick the founder of the Motorcycle Group along with their Chairman Paul Joyce met up with Julia Laverick (no relation to Brian) from the Alzheimer’s Society to agree the basis of their partnership.

Brian said, ‘We have for a number of years supported local Residential Homes and now is the time to take the next step and form a partnership with the Alzheimer’s Society.

It is our intention to fund a ‘Dementia Cafe’ which is to be located within the Stockton/Thornaby area.

The Dementia Cafe will be the perfect setting for people with dementia, their family and friends to relax and meet other people who are in similar situations.

There is a desperate need for places to go whereby people effected with dementia either as a carer or living with dementia can go for advice and help’.

Further announcements will be circulated..

Since 2006 the Boundary 500 Motorcycle Group has been organising/running Motorcycle events to Raise funds for the Great North Air Ambulance.
The main event has been the Boundary 500 Challenge which is a 500 mile ride around the area covered by the Great North Air Ambulance. This event can be done over one or two days at the discretion of the rider.
The other event which runs alongside the Challenge is the Boundary Classic which is open to any age of motorcycle and covers approximately 130 miles around the North Yorkshire Moors. This event is very pillion friendly.
The events have been such a success that the Boundary 500 Motorcycle Group have entered into an agreement with the Great North Air Ambulance that they themselves will now be responsible for the sending out of entry forms etc. and most important of all the two events can now be undertaken on a date to suit you.
The Group themselves will also be having specific dates this year for their members to take part in these events, the Challenge being undertaken on the 1st August and the Classic on the 2nd August. More details will follow about these arrangements which will also be open to the public.
The good thing is you can now take part in these events at a time and date to suit you.
Dont get mixed up with other 500 events that are circulating, the Boundary 500 Challenge and the Boundary Classic are unique events that are recognised and supported by the Great North Air Ambulance Service.
Here are a couple of temporary Posters. More information will follow regarding the specific dates being organised by the Group.
Please enter and support these events, we need to do everything we can to support the Financial Security of the Air Ambulance.

We are now in possession of the Boundary Santa Ride Badges and the quality is great.
They are priced at £3. We have purposely kept the price low. The badge itself does have an ‘Iron On’ capability but it is good practice to add a few stitches to make sure it will remain secure.
As with all things distribution outlets are necessary.
As of Friday 16th January 2015 the badges will be available from the two following locations.

1. Tillstons Motorcycles.

On Monday 25th August 2014 the Group will be holding a memorial ride to remember our friend and colleague, Nick Robinson who was killed in a road traffic accident on Saturday 11th August 2012 and subsequently died of his injuries on Thursday 30th August 2012.
Nick was doing what he liked most and that was riding his motorbike.
Anyone is free to join the ride in really what is a celebration of Nicks life.
The accident was not Nicks fault and the second party was subsequently convicted of causing his death, happened over Settle way and the route which is about 160 miles in length will take in a lot of the roads and areas Nick liked to visit.
For those who would like to join us please feel free to come along. We are meeting at the car park of Conyers school (on Green Lane) at Yarm, 9am for a 9.30am start. Please ensure that the bike tanks are full.
The route.
Take A167 south to Northallerton and on to Busby Stoop.
Follow A61 to and round Ripon and on to the A59 over Blubberhouses to the American Ice Cream parlour near Bolton Castle.
Down to Gisburn and Slaidburn and then Tosside and back into Settle.
Then off to Horton-in-Ribblesdale and on to Hawes.
Then over Buttertubs and down to Richmond.
There will be food stops on route.
Then it’s a slight detour from the original route to take in the Andy Magladdery’s memorial marker near Walworth Castle.


The present record holders for collecting the most money in a Boundary Collecting tin for the Great North Air Ambulance is held by John and Angela Walker of Flaxton Caravan Site. In 2013 their collecting tin contained an amazing £419.20p.

This year John and Angela set out to beat their record and boy did they do that.

The latest tin from John and Angela contained an unbelievable £747.69p. Fantastic effort.

What could be a better combination than riding your bike and raising money to save peoples lives.


The Group has a number of shall we say elderly members but they know no boundaries when it comes to helping others.
Here we have Peter Venis riding the combo. Peter is 84 years of age and is normally connected to an oxygen bottle because of his lung cancer.
In the chair we have Bob Gray who had just come out of hospital and was not well enough to ride his own bike but did not want to miss out. Bobs still a bit of a youngster and is only 70 years old.
They are being followed by their mate Colin Whincup who is a spritely 74 years of age.
What are they doing you may ask, well they were taking part in the Boundary Classic Motorcycle Ride to raise funds for the Great North Air Ambulance. Class Act Guys.
