A group of motorcycle riders from Dacorum will be delivering gifts to the West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust's hospitals for the Raise a Rainbow campaign on Saturday, May 1.

Dacorum Motorcycle Riders are planning to make the journey dressed as 'Bunnies on Bikes' from Monks Inn in Hemel Hempstead, to Watford General Hospital and Hemel Hempstead Hospital.

Raise is the charity dedicated to supporting staff and patient care across Hemel Hempstead, St Albans City and Watford General hospital.

The charity's latest campaign Raise a Rainbow will help the charity work with the community in West Hertfordshire to provide some wellbeing support and spaces of sanctuary for hospital staff.

At Christmas the group planned to deliver donated gifts to patients in hospital, but due to Government restrictions put in place to stop the spread of coronavirus they had to cancel the delivery.

Jon Andrews, from Dacorum Motorcycle Riders, said: "We have received lots of gifts at Monks Inn to be delivered to the hospital on Saturday.

"We all have bunny ears on our helmets and are looking forward to making the special delivery.

"We will be supporting the charity's new campaign, Raise a Rainbow, which focuses on mental health with staff and patients during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Keep an eye out for us, we will be riding around Hemel Hempstead, or come see us at Monks Inn pub from 11am.

"If you see bikers with bunny ears, give us a wave or a beep!"
