The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride

We are always very keen to work with charities to raise awareness and money at our events and we are very proud to be able to let you know that we have decided to raise money to coincide with our first event of the year our Creative Makers Market on Sunday 15th May in the Grand Hall ,Dorking Halls from 11am - 4pm for The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride - a great cause and personal to us both.

This takes place on Sunday 22nd May and is focused on bringing people together, encouraging folks to connect with their fellow gentlefolk and ride together. Community and social connections are vital for mental health, so this year will look to bring its global community together in over 700 cities and 100 countries in celebration of style, motorcycles, and men’s health.

Together with Movember, The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is dedicated to bringing communities together to raise awareness of prostate cancer and helping folks around the world make stronger and more meaningful connections.

Anthony from Gladsla, a favourite with customers at our events, will be taking part, and has since the first one in London. He has been part of the marshalling team at the Guildford ride for 6 years riding A Moto Guzzi V7.

The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride

They ride for a purpose with the focus on gentlemen who have been dealt a tough hand in life. In particular, raising funds for cutting-edge research into prostate cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention programs, as part of their mission to support men’s health globally.

Prostate cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in men.

510,000 men die from suicide globally each year.

That’s one every minute.

This has to change.

The causes of suicide are complex.

There’s no single reason why men take their own lives, but we do know that by improving overall mental health we can reduce the risk of suicide.

We need to address untreated mental health conditions among men.

Too many men are toughing it out and struggling alone. There’s no shame in checking in your own mental wellbeing, and those close to around you.

Men die on average 6 years earlier than women and for largely preventable reasons. The number of men suffering is growing, and we need to do something about that.

So, before we press our tweed and polish our boots, we are asking you to join us in raising funds and awareness for these causes by donating what you can for this meaningful cause and to help the men we love, live happier and healthier lives.

Lets help Anthony raise his target of £250.
