Many of the people reading this will know of my brothers motorcycle accident on the 18th September 2016, hopefully you will also be aware of his friends efforts to raise some funds for him.  The funds will enable him to cover some of his expenses for the year while he will be unable to work and make his recovery a little easier to bear.

Having raised a little over £2,000 so far they have put together a fundraising evening this coming Saturday, the 12th of November, at the Londesborough Arms in Seamer near Scarborough.  There will be live music by local entertainer and biker Sammi Lee, a raffle and an auction.  The raffle prizes and auction items have been donated by local businesses and individuals with some superb items on offer.

Some of the items are motorcycle related including an Abus motorcycle lock, a CBT course, tickets to meet Carl Foggarty, cleaning and maintenance products as well as items from the wider business community including a composite front door from a local double glazing firm and a double glazed rear door from another.  There are vehicle MOT´s available, B&B accomodation in a number of local establishments including the Londesborough Arms, dining vouchers from local restaurants, a lawn mower and many other items and services.  A full list is included further down.

Being the brother of the injured party and running a motorcycle website I decided to try to put something together a bit special, and with the help of a couple of lovely people and a Spanish based World Supersport racer, I think we have managed it.

We contacted Kyle Smith of CIA Landlords Insurance PTR Honda , through mutual friends Angela & David and he was only too happy to help.  It was the weekend of the Jerez round of the WSBK, WSS championships and we managed to secure a signed team shirt (as shown below) and a 50€ donation from one of the team bosses.  Kyle went on to finish third in the race and he donated his Prosecco bottle from the podium.  These are great prizes and not easy to come by.

I was amazed a week later after visiting my brother in the UK that I got another call from David & Angela and they had managed to secure another auction item for me, even more rare than the first.  I still can't quite believe that we have a set of Kyle's autographed Pata Honda race leathers.  The leathers are the ones he wore in the 2015 WSS race at Losail which he won.

Hopefully these items along with those listed below will raise a good amount of money on the night and help to make my brothers recovery a bit simpler and less stressful.  Being an injured self employed person who cannot work is bad enough, having serious injuries, life threatening at first, is another thing altogether.

If you cannot make the event and would like to place a bid on one of the items before luchtime on Saturday then drop me an email and we will make arrangements.

If you would just like to make a small donation you can still do this through the GoFundMe page any amount would be greatly appreciated, the price of a beer for example.
