The Prescott Bike Fest returns to Gloucestershire later this month and organisers are determined that it will be its biggest fundraiser yet.
On Sunday June 25 the Prescott Bike Fest will return to raise money for Blood Bikes. It is organised by , the Severn Freewheelers, the region’s group who save lives by making vital medical deliveries on two wheels.
There will be plenty of incentive to go along, including a huge display of motorcycles, the famous Prescott Speed Climb, an exhibitor zone and special guests – and all while supporting the volunteer emergency service.

Organisers hope to surpass their previous 2015 record of £30,119 raised for the charity’s pot this year.
Gordon Downie, Severn Freewheelers’ treasurer, said: “All of the favourite stuff is back and we’re excited to welcome people to another bike fest – it really is a brilliant day out and the one stop shop for bike lovers and their families everywhere.
“We’ve already raised over £250,000 for charity and we’re hoping to make this year our record in terms of donations. Bike Fest is lots of fun but it really is all about Blood Bikes and raising money for them. They are still out there, 365 days a year, delivering their precious cargo but getting busier than ever.
“We know cash is tight but even a few quid will help this vital volunteer emergency service and we hope to boost their coffers while people have a brilliant time at our festival.”
Steve ‘Stavros’ Parrish, a former professional motorcycle and truck racer turned commentator and media personality, will return as a special guest to entertain the masses.
Rob Balls, Bikesure general manager, added: “We’re proud to support this brilliant festival that shines further light on the wonderful spirit within the biker community.
“The kindness, camaraderie and desire to fundraise for good causes can be seen up and down the country and Prescott Bike Fest brings that, and more, to Gloucestershire.”
Admission for the event, being supported by Bikesure, the UK’s largest motorcycle insurance broker, and BMW Cotswold Motorrad, is £15 in advance or £20 on the day. It runs from 9.30am-5pm.
