On our Irish Trip we offered those who hadn’t been to Gretna (Spring Run) to contribute to our Sponsorship Fund on behalf of the National Assn for Bikers with a Disability..Murray, John Taylor-,Stewart & Angela plus Dave Montgomery had submitted their sponsored funds. Therefore, Harvey & Heather, who had been on holiday & didn’t get the chance to grab sponsors, made themselves available for any contributions, post our evening meal.
Well, didn’t Heather do well- must be the good looks & introvert personality that achieved a total of £244.
Thus this sum, added to the previous lumps totalled as detailed in our letter to the Association, extracts of which are represented below.
Grumpy managed a foto (or 2?) of Mark’s trike for your appreciation of the cracking vehicle that it is.
Re WSVMCC Sponsored Cycle Run- Falkirk Wheel 1st Sept 2013
On behalf of WSVMCC I return all the Sponsorship Sheets you kindly sent to Murray Clacher.
Murray was the driving force for this event, encouraging entrants, persuading our Club and our Sister Club, the Ulster 30 Club to urge our Members to amplify the funds. He, himself, a gentleman of no mean kilos, undertook the challenge towing a buggy with his 2 grandchildren inside- what a hero..
Not only that, his sponsor sheets pulled in the greatest sum.
His inspiration was meeting Mark Fenton with his go-faster 3 wheeler, in Northern Ireland two years ago when our Club was over for our annual pilgrimage weekend.
Mark and his parents, Roy & Margaret Fenton are also Members of the Ulster 30.
We are delighted to enclose our cheque for £1,300, which we hope will bolster your funds and help you with the fantastic work you do.
Chairman WSVMCC 25th September 2013
