Big-hearted bikers handed over a cheque for well over £5,000 to Action for Children at Stornoway Golf Club on Thursday July 5th.

The grand total of £5,391.15 was raised at the Midge Biters Rally, which saw 120 bikers descending on Stornoway from as far afield as Australia to participate in a weekend of events, which included a ride-out to Northton in Harris.

The ride was filmed by Channel 5 for a new series of Britain by Bike, with presenter George Lamb joining the bikers.

Action for Children, which provides support services to looked-after children, was the nominated charity this year.
