Oakdale man's bike ride tribute to wife
9:20pm Thursday 20th September 2012 in News
AN OAKDALE man will be doing a motorbike ride in memory of his wife to raise money for St Anne’s Hospice.
John Williams, 61, will ride on his Harley-Davidson from the Travellers Rest on Penyfan Caravan Park in Oakdale to Tintern in memory of his wife Olwyn, who died last year of cancer aged 61. She was a nurse in Oakdale Hospital for more than 20 years and they would often ride from the Travellers Rest to Tintern.
Their son Matthew, 35, will also be taking part in the ride and Mr Williams hopes to get at least 50 riders to join them on the day.
Each bike will pay £5 and all the proceeds will go to St Anne’s Hospice where Mr Williams’ wife spent two weeks.
He said: “The nurses were superb there so I wanted to raise money for the hospice.”
The riders will meet at the Travellers Rest at around 9.45am and leave at 10.45am on Sunday. There will also be a raffle on the day.
If you would like to join the riders, call Mr Williams on 07818 654997.
