A WREXHAM couple got on their bikes to complete the 2008 Interphone National Road Rally.
Margaret Condrey, 54, and her partner Peter Clarke, 48, from Bwlchgwyn raised £200 for Mencap.
Their fundraising will help Mencap campaign for greater opportunities in work and leisure for people with a learning disability.
Peter, an engineer at a motorsports company, and Margaret, a cleaner, achieved the Gold Award in the rally by covering 540 miles along the route.
Margaret, who joined Peter as his pillion passenger, celebrated her 54th birthday enjoying the open roads.
She said: “The atmosphere at the rally and the moral support we received from everyone at the weekend was brilliant. I enjoyed celebrating my birthday at the rally raising money for Mencap, as it is a great cause that provides excellent support for its fundraisers.”
More than 800 motorcyclists took to the roads for the rally.
Margaret and Peter started out at the Darley Moor Motor Cycle Road Race Club in Ashbourne, Derbyshire, and rode all night, finishing the next day at Bletchley Park, near Milton Keynes.
Tina Williams, head of national fundraising for Mencap, said: “We were delighted to have the support of motorcyclists from all across the country. The money will make a difference to the lives of people with a learning disability.”
