A thank you message for frontline workers outside Birch Hill Hospital, Rochdale
A ‘ride of respect’ for NHS and frontline workers and family fun day will take place in Rochdale town centre on Sunday (12 September).
The ‘red road day’ ride – which has been cancelled once due to the pandemic – to raise money for Frontline19, a free confidential service which delivers psychological support to those working on the frontline. This includes NHS workers, hospital staff, emergency response teams, ambulance support staff and social and care home workers.
The ride, which will start from the Rochdale Sports Club on Bridgefold Road has been organised by the team behind the annual M60 ‘ride of red’ which sees thousands of red-clad motorcyclists travel clockwise along the Greater Manchester motorway – appearing to make a huge red poppy around Manchester when viewed from above.
Bikers will set off from Rochdale Sports Club on a route which includes Cheetham Hill, Failsworth, Royton and Milnrow.
In addition to the ride, which finishes at Rochdale Town Hall, a family fun day with stalls will be hosted at Packer Street in Rochdale town centre. Refreshments will also be available throughout the day.
The ride will commence at 11am and riders will arrive in the town centre from 12.15pm.
