"Chicken Mick" celebrates birthday with a donation to Midlands Air Ambulance

The Annual Chicken Run organised by “Chicken” Mick Worrall on the 2nd September raised an amazing £2800 for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity.

The ride out was the second annual charity chicken run which started at the Hopwood Services at junction two of the M42 and arrived about two hours later at the Old Beams pub in Stourport.

The event had over 500 bikes from all over the Midlands and people lining the streets in Bewdley and Stourport. At the finish point there was music, food and charity stalls.

“We always choose the Midlands Air Ambulance to raise money for because they saved my husband Mick “Chicken Mick” Worrall’s life. He always dresses as a chicken during fundraisers.” said Jackie.

Emergency Blood Bikers and members of the regions biking clubs helped marshal the roads along with the Severn Free Wheelers.

Jason Levy Fundraising Director for MAAC met with Mick and the run organisers on Saturday 15th September and was not only presented with a cheque but was also on hand to celebrate Micks birthday with wife Jackie and friends ! Mick said “There were a lot of generous people,” One man donated a hamper full of food as well as £50. Next year it will be bigger, we will organise more stuff and raise more money.”

Jason said "Everyone wants to say a big thank you for an amazing donation from the Chicken Run, the event seems to get bigger and bigger and we cant wait for next year. We would also like to wish Mick an extra special happy birthday from all the team at MAA!"
