HUNDREDS of bikers turned out in support of a campaign to help raise funds for a two-year-old boy who needs life-saving treatment.

Steve Davies from Carlisle organised a socially-distanced motorbike ride from Carlisle to Keswick and back to raise money for the Save Our Stan appeal.

Stanley Dalton, two, was in remission from T-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia in February but his shocked parents were told this month that it was back.

He now needs life-saving treatment – something that is not available in the UK so his family need to raise £500,000 to take him to Singapore.

On Saturday scores of bikers met at Pizza Hut in Carlisle before embarking on the ride to Keswick and back.

Organiser Steve was blown away by the support he received.

He said: “It was absolutely amazing, I couldn’t fault it.

“I saw the story and the easy thing to do would be to chuck some money at it but I thought I would do a little bit more than that.”

This is where the idea for the sponsored ride came from.

On the day more than 180 bikers turned out in support of Steve and the appeal for Stan.

“A couple of the guys said they looked at my face and I'd gone like a ghost,” continued Steve.

“It was phenomenal. We did our best.”

Steve managed to raise £2,500 which will all go towards the appeal and help Stan get closer to the total.

On the day £2,185 was raised which was topped up to £2,500 by one of Steve’s friends who runs CBR Electrics.

Steve added: “It is heart wrenching. It is mind boggling what people are doing for this little boy.

“Lee [Stan’s dad] was down on Saturday and he said when he heard all the bikes start he just wanted to cry. With the support and everything else it is just unbelievable. I’d like to thank everyone involved.”
