Bikers trek for Sharon

A CHARITY bike ride in memory of a popular woman with strong links to Filey will take place next weekend.

Sharon Blenkin, who had a caravan at Blue Dolphin Caravan Park, passed away in March, aged 48, after a long and courageous battle with cancer.

Now members of her family have organised an 89-mile bike ride from Kirklees, in West Yorkshire, to Coble Landing.

Sharon’s friend, Sandra Binns, said: “She was a great friend of ours and had a lot of friends in Filey.”

The bike ride, which will be completed by 22 people on Saturday, September 10, will raise money for the Kirkwood Hospice in Kirklees, where Sharon passed away.
