AN EVENT organised by the Lakeside man who died following a street attack will continue this year in his memory.
Nigel Shakespeare had previously organised and taken part in the World’s Largest Unofficial St George’s Day parade which sees bikers take to the streets to celebrate the country’s patron saint.
Following his death last month after an attack in Sillins Avenue, friends of the 50-year-old are set to continue the event while raising money for the National Association for Bikers with a Disability (NABD), a charity which he supported.
Rob Jones told the Standard: “All money raised from the sale of £8 t-shirts will go to NABD. Because it’s something he used to organise and he is not here to organise it or attend, we thought it would be the best way to support a charity he supported and an event he organised.”
Around 200 people are expected to take part in the ride, which starts at 8.15am on Sunday, April 21, at the Tesco near Junction 4 of the M42, riding through Shirley to Henley-in-Arden.
