Santa Ride Teesside 2018

The Boundary 500 Club Santa Ride, one of the largest motorcycle charity events in the UK, is set to return on Saturday 18 November 2023.

Hundreds of Santa-clad bikers will take to the streets of Teesside to raise money for Zoë’s Baby Hospice.

The ride starts at Thornaby Town Centre and ends at Kirkleatham Walled Garden, with a route that takes in Middlesbrough and Stockton. Riders will stop at various checkpoints along the way to collect donations from the public.

The event is open to all motorcycles, regardless of make or model. All riders must be dressed as Santa Claus, and their bikes must be decorated in festive attire.

The Boundary 500 Club Santa Ride has raised over £840,000 for charities since it was first held in 2006. Organisers are hoping to raise even more money this year to support the vital work of Zoë’s Baby Hospice.

About Zoë’s Baby Hospice

Zoë’s Baby Hospice is a charity that provides palliative and respite care to babies and toddlers with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. The hospice is located in Middlesbrough and serves families from across the North East of England.

Zoë’s Baby Hospice provides a range of services to families, including:

  • Respite care: This gives parents a break from caring for their child, so they can rest and recharge.
  • Palliative care: This provides support and care to children who are terminally ill.
  • Bereavement support: This helps families to cope with the loss of their child.

Zoë’s Baby Hospice relies on donations from the public to operate. The Boundary 500 Club Santa Ride is a great way to support this vital charity and make a difference to the lives of babies and toddlers with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions.
