Charity

Each year the club supports one main charity and one small, local charity.

In 2016 the total amount raised for the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity was £1,044.77

For 2016, the proceeds from the Christmas raffle (£80) went to the MS Therapy Centre, Hereford.

For 2017 the main charity is the Macmillan Cancer Support

In 2014 it became evident that three major charitable causes were at the top of members’ requests.  Consequently, these charities will be supported in rotation.  The charities are:
MacMillan Cancer Support;  St Michael’s Hospice; Wales or Midlands Air Ambulance
(the two air ambulance services between them provide cover for the areas we most commonly ride).

To ensure small, local charities also benefit from the club’s fund raising efforts, it was decided to devote the proceeds of the raffle held at the Christmas/Awards night each year to the small, local charity chosen by most members (shown on their subscription application form).  Recipients can be chosen once only in a five-year period.
