Students ride to prom in style

August 20th, 2013


As a principal memebr of the Harley Davidson Owners Club, Cardinal’s Alan Ward hit the news again as students of St James School in Knaresborough rode to their prom ball on the back of a “Harley”

Ten friends attending St James School decided to forego the usual stretch limos and try something completely different so Nathan Baker and his Mum, Debra contacted the “Hogs” who, in exchange for a charitable donation, agreed to give the students a special ride to their Prom Night.

Each student donated £20 to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and presented a cheque for £200 to the North Yorkshire YAA fund raising manager, Tony Doveston, on the night.

The boys themselves had a great time and penned a letter of thanks to Alan and his colleagues

We all just want to say a huge Thank You for taking us to prom on the bikes – it was incredible.

At first most of us were worried about our hair and what the helmets would do, but after we had seen the bikes it was soon forgotten.

We all agree that it was an amazing experience, and a very awesome and fresh idea as a method of transport to the ball. We all really appreciated the time you took to take us all.

The bikes themselves were incredible, they looked amazing, and the sound of them was out of this world. I can safely say we all felt pretty good on the back. And the ride itself was an experience we will all remember for a long time

Most of us have never been on a motor bike before, and you made our first experience that amazing, we all now want a bike ourselves. Who knows we might see you on the roads one day.

Once again a huge thank you from all of us, you helped to make our leavers ball a night to remember.

We were also delighted to be able to raise money for the Yorkshire air ambulance; it is a great charity to donate to.

Many Thanks,

Nathan, Harry C, Shem, Laurence, Sam, Harry F, Josh, Harry W, Charlie & Callum
