Fireground Museum Open Day - Blood Bikes Manchester & Rochdale’s Brass Knuckle Riders
An open day at Rochdale’s Fireground Museum has raised funds for local charity Blood Bikes Manchester.
Joining Fireground on Saturday (18 September) were local motorbike group Brass Knuckle Riders with a fantastic display of their bikes, with support from Chris and David Schofield Sidecar team, SSR F2.
Also on the Maclure Road yard were Fireground’s Volvo fire engine, a bouncy castle, Fireman Sam 'ride on' fire engine, and a wide variety of exhibits.
Fire museum attractions were also on show inside the museum including a collection of historic firefighting artefacts from the 18th century to present day, plus home-made refreshments in the new Fireground Café, and souvenirs.
Blood Bikes Manchester is an entirely volunteer-run operation which helps the NHS by rapidly transporting and delivering blood and other medical equipment between hospitals.
Around £120 was raised for the cause.
Brass Knuckle Riders is one of the largest North West community-based riding groups - based at Empire, Packer Street, Rochdale - and was established in 2017. Each year the group looks for charities or organisations within the community to raise funds for.
Fireground is open to visitors on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, 10am - 4pm. Under 4s are free, Children (aged 4-15) and Concessions £5, Adults £7 and Family (4 people) £20.
