The heartbroken family of a Chesterfield biker who passed away after battling cancer are reaching out to fellow bikers in the area in order to give their ‘amazing’ mum the best send-off possible.

‘Bubbly and outgoing’ Cheryl Manley passed away earlier this month, aged 53.

Cheryl, a former care assistant and traffic warden who ‘had many friends’ in Chesterfield thanks to her caring and charitable nature, was diagnosed with cancer in November of this year.

A dedicated biker, one of the goals on a bucket list Cheryl created included riding a motorbike for the last time.

Sadly, the ‘inspiration to many’ never got that last wish, so the family are hoping fellow bikers will support them by following her funeral procession. The funeral will take place next Monday (December 17).

Bikers and other supporters wanting to follow the procession to Brimington Crematorium are required to gather at Chas Widdowson and Son funeral home at 33 Hazelhurst Lane, Stonegravels, Chesterfield S41 7LX from 2pm.

Cheryl leaves behind her mum Sandra, along with children Daniel and Louise.

The family would like to thank Cheryl’s friends for their love and support during her end stages, along with Macmillan Cancer Care.

Anyone wanting to make a donation in Cheryl’s memory should do so to Macmillan.
