Chunk for char­ity from Har­ley sale fol­low­ing sur­prise raf­fle win

The Cairns Post - - NEWS - JACK LAWRIE

RICHARD Shaw wasn’t ex­pect­ing any­thing when he en­tered the Wayne Leonard’s Mo­tor­cy­cle Muster raf­fle to win a new mo­tor­bike – he didn’t even have a li­cence.

Imag­ine his sur­prise when he learned he had won a Har­ley-David­son Sport­ster Iron 883.

“I’m more a truck and trac­tor per­son, so the bike is for sale,” he said.

Mr Shaw will sell the mo­tor­bike through Har­ley Magic, with 25 per cent of the pro­ceeds go­ing to the Far North Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion.

“The foun­da­tion does an amaz­ing job for peo­ple in Cairns, I thought it was im­por­tant to take part, even just by buy­ing a $4 raf­fle ticket.”

Mr Shaw bought the tick­ets off his col­league at Cob­ham Avi­a­tion, Dan Rayner, who was tak­ing part in the muster to raise money for new EEG equip­ment at Cairns Hospita.

“I would’ve rid­den it if I’d won,” Mr Rayner said.

Har­ley Magic owner Wayne Leonard said peo­ple could visit the shop to make an of­fer on the bike, which was val­ued at just un­der $15,000.
