Friday 26 June: Tour de Lard depart for the French alps. A group of adventurous and slightly mad Englishmen set off this morning for a 1600 mile round trip to the French alps in order to raise funds for Jubilee House Care Trust.

Their chosen transport comprised 3 rather elderly Reliant Robin three wheelers together with 2 motorcycle outfits, powered by Norton and Royal Enfield.

RT director Steve Stokes, also chair of Jubilee House, joined the many well-wishers, press and local girl Vicky Butler Henderson for the early morning wave off at the Moon and Stars pub near Buntingford.
