■ A Kar­ratha lo­cal is one Tri­umph mo­tor­bike richer af­ter win­ning the Kar­ratha Bik­ers As­so­ci­a­tion’s raf­fle draw.

Sean Walsh said he was “stoked” hav­ing won him­self a lim­ited edi­tion 2015 Tri­umph Thun­der­bird Night­storm.

“I just have a dirt bike and ride out on the back trails, so I guess I will have to do a bit of road rid­ing now,” he said.

“This is the first thing I’ve won — it’s a damn fine way to start.

“The raf­fle is a credit to th­ese guys really, they do all the work sell­ing tick­ets.”

Mr Walsh said the KBA guys were “top blokes”.

KBA pres­i­dent Matt Peters said more than $15,000 had been raised by the raf­fle, making this a bumper year for the club.

“Our an­nual fundrais­ing for the year is around $25,000,” he said.

“We av­er­age about $10,000 … this raf­fle has made a big dif­fer­ence.”

Te­quiras net­ball, tee­ball, soc­cer, Saints boot­camp, gym­nas­tics and Peak1 box­ing were the clubs to ben­e­fit from the raf­fle fundraiser.
