Bikers are Angels for Ripley
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.
