About 500 motorcyclists are planning to ride together to support a charity which brings injured former soldiers to Jersey on holiday.

All kinds of motorbike riders are planning to support the Holidays for Heroes charity.

They will drive from a layby on Victoria Avenue to Greve de Lecq.

Holidays for Heroes gives a week's holiday in Jersey for any past or present member of the forces injured on active duty.

Lee Butler, one of the organisers, said it was going to be quite a spectacle.

He said: "We have got the scooter clubs, all the bike clubs in the island taking part and we have invited all the little ones on their nifty 50s - it is going to be a great day."
