BIKERS who raised more than �9,000 at their annual show have given the cash to a host of charities.
Royston and District Motorcyle Club held its presentation evening at the Eternit Social Club, Meldreth, to distribute the money raised at the bike show in June.
The proceeds were split between the East Anglian Air Ambulance, emergency medical charity Magpas, and Meldreth Manor School, while donations were also made to
the St John Ambulance Service and Melbourn Army Cadet Force, who helped out at the show.

Royston mayor Cllr Rod Kennedy presented the cheques and said he was "overwhelmed" by the amount the motorcycle club had raised.
Roger Gale, Meldreth Manor School principal, said: "Our pupils and staff love seeing and hearing the show every year. I am amazed every year that within hours the car park and riding stables are turned into a bustling bike show, with more than 3,000 people in attendance, then before midnight it's an empty car park once again.

"It's something the children look forward too, and long may it continue."
Air ambulance spokesman Alison Horlsey said: "A few years ago when I mentioned the show to bikers I met they would ask me what on earth I was talking about.
"Now the show is seen by many bikers, as the unofficial start of the summer. Its reputation is getting very well known."
The date has already been set for next year's show which will be held at Meldreth Manor School on June 16.
