CRUEL CRIMINALS: Fundraising appeal launched after thieves target Garston youth motorcycle club

 Published on: 15th April 2020   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

People in Garston and beyond are being asked to help after thieves targeted a youth motorcycle club over the last bank holiday weekend.

Woodside Motocross Club has been run by Kim Boot for the past 25 years at Francis Combe Academy in Watford.

He set up the club to give young people a fun outlet for their energies on the proviso they stay out of trouble.

But thieves broke into the club and stole nine motorcycles, worth £25,000, over the Easter holiday and there are now fears over the future of the club. 

Claire Hall has launched a GoFundMe page and on it, she explained why the club is so important.

She said: “This club means so much to children and parents. The club is run for 11 to 17-year olds who have not only been taught about motorbikes and riding safely but also so much more in terms of self-confidence, respect, friendship and so much more. This is our chance to give back after Kim and his team have given so much to the community over the years.

“The club charges next to nothing for kids to attend and does not have money in the bank to replace the bikes, insurance was also not an option in terms of affordability. So please spare anything that you can to help get the club back on track.”
