Businesses are being urged to donate prizes for a raffle which will take place as part of a memorial ride-out.

The event on August 2 will remember motorbike rider Andrew Siddall, of North Wingfield, and his passenger and life-long friend Robert Newton, from Boythorpe, who both died in June 2013.

They were killed instantly when they were hit by another rider outside the Hunloke Arms on the A61 at Wingerworth.

The third rider, Sheffield man David Wilson, also died in the crash.

The memorial ride-out, which has been held since 2013, will leave the Wingerworth pub and finish at the Fishpond in Matlock Bath where a raffle will take place to raise funds for Derbyshire air ambulance.
