Bik­ers are An­gels for Ri­p­ley

Surrey Advertiser - - Front Page -

WEY Val­ley Ad­vanced Mo­tor­cy­clists (WVAM) have been revving up to raise funds to pro­vide the lifesaving de­fib­ril­la­tor which now sits proudly in­stalled in the porch of Ri­p­ley Vil­lage Hall.

It can be used in an emer­gency by the pub­lic to restart a stopped heart.

WVAM chair­man Tim Good­man said: “For many years, Ri­p­ley Vil­lage Hall has been our spir­i­tual home and it feels re­ally good to be giv­ing some­thing back to this com­mu­nity”.

The IAM (In­sti­tute of Ad­vanced Mo­torists) is best known for the ad­vanced driv­ing test and the ad­vanced driv­ing and mo­tor­cy­cling cour­ses.

The WVAM is the largest and most suc­cess­ful of the IAM’s 200 lo­cal vol­un­teer groups, with 500 ac­tive mem­bers.

Its pol­icy and re­search di­vi­sion of­fers ad­vice and ex­per­tise on road safety.
