This year's Goldwing Light Parade.

The accolade, which recognises the brilliant fundraising efforts of the volunteers involved, was presented to organisers John Bates and Janet Houseman at a ceremony in Oulton Hall in Leeds on October 17.

The Honda Goldwing Light Parade, held every September, is a must-visit event in the Scarborough calendar, consisting of illuminated Goldwing bikes parading along the seafront and Royal Albert Drive with riders wearing fancy dress.

In little over two years, the event has raised over £30,000 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, £11,000 of which was raised in 2019.

The event will be back next year, on September 12.
