A group of off-road trail riders has handed over £500 towards the upkeep of a Dales village hall.

The money was handed over to the Old School House in Horsehouse after being raised from a 122-mile green lane charity run which took place in Bishopdale, Wensleydale, Nidderdale and Coverdale in August.

Trial riders Stuart Lowther and Barry Watson obtained access permissions from several landowners to link up the three Dales.

Twenty five trail riders from the Trail Riders Fellowship members and others from Richmond Motor Club, enjoyed the ride and luch at the Forresters Arms in Carlton.

Last week Stuart, Lowther handed over the cheque to hall manager Anne Readshaw.

Five trail riders attended the presentation.

Further runs are planned next year with further charity donations planned.
