Recent charity work by the Barrel Bikers MCC

Our most recent charity, who we have collected for from Apr-22 to Mar-23, was the Blood bikes (  We raised £1,669.914

At Christmas 2022 we donated to charity rather than giving each other Christmas Cards.  This was donated to Curly Tails Pig Sanctuary in Newton Longville (

Over the pandemic we were unable to elect a new charity annually as we usually do so continued to support our 2019 elected Charity, The Milton Keynes hospital Charity (, until Apr-22.  We raised £2,399.39 during this time.

In memory of Mole, who we lost to Covid during the pandemic, we did a midsummer run in 2022 to the Rollright stones.  Mole’s widow, Karen, chose Prostate Cancer UK as the beneficiary of the funds raised.

Attached are the lovely thank you letters we have received for these donations.



Supporting local charities

On the 25th September several club members were out & about around the local area supporting the “Tour de Tyringham” charity cycling event.  We have supported this event for a number of years now and always enjoy the lovely routes chosen by the organisers.  We were very please to receive great feedback from many of the participants for our marshalling of the event, and for the beer we were given too!
