Bik­ers’ do­na­tion is big­gest ever to Head­way

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

A HAYES-BASED biker club has raised £10,000 for a brain in­jury char­ity, which is the sin­gle largest do­na­tion the group has ever had.

The West London Har­ley Riders spend four years or­gan­is­ing a five-day party for over 6,000 Har­ley-David­son riders.

Money raised from the event was do­nated to Head­way North West London, which of­fers spe­cial­ist ser­vices for lo­cal peo­ple af­fected by trau­matic brain in­juries.

The biker group have sup­ported Head­way for 17 years, host­ing par­ties, bike shows and ral­lies.

Pres­i­dent of the West London Har­ley Riders, Catweasle, said: “We are very proud of all our mem­bers, friends, and fam­i­lies, with­out whom it would not have been pos­si­ble.”

The Fed­er­a­tion of Har­ley-David­son Clubs of Europe Su­per Rally was held in Lin­coln in 2015 and saw 35-bands per­form with beer and food for all at­ten­dees.

The Har­ley riders also raised £4,000 for the Na­tional Youth­bike or­gan­i­sa­tion, which is an ed­u­ca­tional char­ity that gets young peo­ple in­volved in build­ing bikes.
