Raising funds – but not hell

A MOTORCYCLE charity ride that falls during Cooly Rocks On is a happy coincidence according to Tweed Heads American Motorcycle Club's Darryl Davey.

The club does a ride each year to raise funds for palliative care.

Last year the group raised $5000 and were hoping to hit that figure after the run if the weather stayed kind.

"We are a part of a bigger club that will come to take part," Mr Davey said.

"It's a great area to ride and we show the best parts. Some of the people who come for the run also go to the (Cooly Rocks On) festival."

Mr Davey said the club raises money for Make-a-Wish Foundation and Tweed Palliative Care but it couldn't do it without the support of local businesses and hotels.

"We are a decent club rather than a rascal club you always hear about," he said.

"We get invited back by all the hotels we visit."

This year's run is $25 and includes lunch at the Victory Hotel, Mooball.

Despite being different from other motorcycle clubs, Mr Davey said some police targeted the club on its runs.

"We are tarred by the same brush," he said.

Anyone wanting to join in the run today should phone 0410 531 719. Riders meet at Chinderah Tavern at 9am for a 10am start.
