BikeWise Donations 2008

The BikeWise event this year proved to be huge success and that success has allowed us to give away a record breaking 10,500 pounds this year to a whole range of causes.

Recipients include the Great North Air Ambulance who will be presented a cheque for 2000 pounds by ex PC Piers Lawrence.

Piers was a matter of days from retirement when he was struck by a car when assisting at the scene of a traffic accident.

His injuries were serious and he was rushed by the Air Ambulance to hospital, there is no doubt it played a significant part in his recovery.

St Cuthbert's hospice in Durham City have been given 1300 pounds to assist with fitting out their new coffee shop for the benefit patients and visitors.

Medical charities associated with diseases such as Meningitis, Cancer and Cystic Fibrosis will receive over 2500 pounds in donations.

Other beneficiaries include amongst others Durham Advanced Motorcyclists, Teesdale and Weardale Search and Mountain Rescue Team, BikeWise mini bike club and three local children touched by serious illness.

In addition the first responders scheme in Weardale will be given 500 pounds which seemed fitting given that so many bikers pass through the Dale.

It's never easy deciding what causes should benefit however as you can see many are local.

We haven't allocated every last penny which means that we are still able to support local causes that crop up over the course of the year, particularly those associated with bikers.

So if you are involved or know somebody or a group that are in need of support please give us a shout and we'll see what we can do.
