The bikers met up at Grantham before heading off for Pilgrim Hospital in Boston, Skegness Hospital, and Lough and Lincoln Hospitals.

They ended their day at Woody’s near Ancaster for refreshments.

Before setting of Sarah said: “We will be highlighting the rural area in which we live and the distances between these five hospitals, whilst showing our solidarity for our NHS staff and showing how Lincolnshire pulls together in times of crisis.”

Sarah said on facebook after the rally: “Thank you all for a lovely day! I am proud to know you all and am grateful for every day!”
