A Lancashire motorcycle retailer has raised over £1,000 for North West Blood Bikes.

More than 100 local riders attended the Seasonal Social at Bowker Motorrad in Preston with North West Blood Bikes as the main beneficiary.

The fundraising raffle offered the chance to win British Superbikes Tickets, Lunch at Northcote and other prizes from Booths, Pirelli, Bell Helmets, ACF50, Bike Tyrestore and Datatool UK.

Whilst the auction included one-off money-can’t-buy items donated by PR Racing and Czech superbike rider Jakub Smrz who donated his race leathers to the cause.

For Bowker Motorrad, John Nichol said: “Thank you to everyone who supported our Seasonal Social. The showroom was packed. And everyone gave generously to North West Blood Bikes.”

Bowker Motorrad and North West Blood Bikes enjoy a close relationship. The charity’s volunteers receive exclusive preferential rates and a speedy booking service for bike maintenance. In addition, Bowker Motorrad offers a courtesy motorcycle, liveried in North West Blood Bike branding, available to volunteers whilst their motorcycles are being serviced.

With over 300 riders, North West Blood Bikes is the largest hospital delivery charity in the world. They receive over 1,000 calls each month. Each call represents an urgent, potentially life-saving, request for a delivery to or from a North West hospital.

Lee Townsend for North West Blood Bikes said: “This was a wonderful event and a generous gesture from the team and customers at Bowker Motorrad. Every donation, no matter how small or large, makes a massive difference to the service we can provide, and the local lives we save.”
