He said: “It has been 50 years since we ran from John O’Groats to Lands End, we ran to raise money for BE motor and cycle benevolent fund.

“We managed to meet 25 years ago at the Jolly Topers and I hope we can do it again.

“Hopefully we can get as many of us together as possible, it will be 7.30pm and if anyone needs more information they can contact me on rjpaulorme@hotmail.com.”
