A RHUDDLAN motorcycle club has begun raising money for a missing member.
The Whistlestop cafe and motorcycle club, of the HTM Business Park, Abergele Road, have raised an ongoing total of over £1,000 for Arthur Jones, a 73-year-old Denbigh man who went missing whilst holidaying in the Greek Island of Crete last week.
Jimmy Aspinall, aged 62, a founder member of the club, said: “Arthur has been a member of the club for over 15 years now and he is simply one of the nicest men you will ever likely to meet.
“The support we have received in raising money for his family has been so touching, and it just shows what a high regard the man is held in by everyone here.
"Anyone that has come into contact with him has been willing to put a hand in their pocket and we have already sent the money over to his family who are out there searching for him.”
They have raised the sum by collections at the cafe and from members, while the Conwy motorcycle club have also contributed around £375 to the cause.
Mr Jones, a keen hiker who was also a member of the British Army Cadets for over 30 years, was staying at the Paradakalis apartments and has not been seen since Thursday, June 19.
Anyone with any information regarding his disappearance should contact North Wales Police on 101 or alternatively via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
