A CHARITY event for motorcyclists to complete an 80-mile round trip is planned for May 6.

The ride, from Locksbottom to Hastings and back, will raise cash for two-year-old Kieran Coomber, of Wells Hill Lane, Chelmsfield, to be sent on a specialist programme for autistic children.

Ten riders have already committed to getting sponsored for the journey.

Kieran's mother Gill said: "It's very kind of people to help. We hope this programme will enable Kieran to attend mainstream school eventually."
