The funds were raised during the recent Ride of Respect motorcycle rally, which drew about 30 riders to Montecillo for the start of a journey from Dunedin to Balclutha, Gore, Invercargill, Queenstown, Cromwell and Alexandra.

They picked up more motorcyclists along the way and by the time the group got to Alexandra, there were 62 riders involved.

Mr Scorringe, of Dunedin, said this year's ride raised $1448.50, which was split three ways between the RSAs of Dunedin, Alexandra and Invercargill.

Mr Kellas was delighted with the amount raised.

"I think it's a great effort by the guys. Every little bit helps,'' he said.
