UCAN Motorcycle Fun Run

The Founder of the UCAN Trophy motorcycle fun run, Chris Norton, sadly passed away on Friday 6th May after a long battle with prostate cancer. He will be sorely missed by all his friends and family, and those who worked with him in establishing the UCAN fun run.

The 5th fun run will go ahead on Sunday 18th Sep 2011, and we will be aiming to raise the £5000 that Chris so wanted to achieve.

You can help by starting your fundraising efforts now - perhaps by holding a garage sale / charity BBQ / swear box collection / sposored run / ride / walk - or just by making a donation to UCAN at

A special charity dance in memory of Chris is taking place on FRIDAY 1st JULY 2011, in the Midmar village hall. There will be a 1970s disco, food and a GRAND RAFFLE -
*1st Prize Dinner and B&B for two at the Marcliffe Hotel, Pitfodels.
*2nd Prize £200 Hamper
*3rd Prize Golf for 4 at Alford Golf Club
*4th Prize £100 Scottish Hamper
Plus many more prizes up for grabs!

Tickets for the dance and raffle can be purchased in advance by contacting Lorna Adam 01330 833333 or emailing

Sad news about Chris, met him a couple of times, a jolly chap who put a fair bit of his time into UCAN.

Shame to hear about this....never met Chris, but it's always a bad thing whenever someone succumbs to cancer no matter what type.

Chris was one of the good guys, not perfect, but more like him and the world would be a better place. Trouble is, he would never let us tell him how much we thought of him when he was alive. Well, now he's gone he'll have to put up with it! RIP Chris.
