The Berkhamsted Motorcycle Club (MCC) have announced that they will be supporting Waterways Experience with the money the raised from last year’s trial.
Waterways Experience is situated on the same site as the motorcycle club and will undoubtedly benefit from the £1,000 that was raised back in December.
The club raised the money by holding their annual Motorcycle Trial, and all profit that was made from the day will be going to their chosen charity.
Ted North, the President of Berkhamsted MCC, spoke to the magazine, he said: “We have run a motorcycle trial each year for a chosen charity since the year 2000, and with this year’s amount of £1000, the total raised to date exceeds £23,000.
“Waterways Experience specialises in trips for care homes, youth groups and those who are disabled or disadvantaged.
Waterways Experience trustee, Sally Ash, spoke of her gratitude towards the generous donation, she said: “We’ve known them for years having been neighbours with them, but we were just stunned and thrilled to receive this donation and we were all really looking forward for the presentation.
“We provide trips for disadvantaged people, and the donation will go a long way to building a new ecological boat that we’re all aiming for.”
Previous charities that the motorcycle club have supported include Macmillan Cancer Support, St Francis Hospice and Cardiac Arrest in the Young.
Berkhamsted MCC formed in 1908 and are still a very active club with events coming up all throughout the year and there are over 300 members at the club with a range of different ages.
