Bikers fulfill late father's desire to transport son to prom

A number of motorcyclists assisted a father in fulfilling his wish to send his son to prom with a biker.

Jane Matkin, a friend of The Leicestershire family and The Crown Inn landlady in Heather organized the convoy.

The bikers left the pub to accompany Miky (16), to Bosworth Hall, Market Bosworth on Thursday.

Lisa, his mother, said that it was something her husband had intended to do before her son died in February.

Lisa claimed that Chris, her partner, died from a massive heart attack. This was made worse by diabetes.

She stated that Miky was "really near" to his father, and was greatly affected by his passing.

Ms. Matkin, 53 years old, was asked by his father to arrange for a biker to accompany his son to prom.

She stated that her dad was a biker, and for his prom he wanted to get everyone together to ride him to the night.

Ms. Matkin had posted a call for bikers on social media in the lead-up to the event. However, she was shocked at the number of people who responded.

She estimates that there were around 100 bikers.

The escort took the escort from the pub to the home of the family in Coalville.

They rode then in front and back of the classic car Miky drove in to Bosworth Hall.

Lisa stated that Miky thought it was brilliant. It was also very emotional, but it was a great turnout.
