After Neil Bradbury contacted us about his ambition join the Pacific Coast Highway Charity Ride and raise £5,000 in sponsorship to provide a free tour to a ‘Wounded Solider’, Keith Dawson and raise money for the 5 British Forces charities, we produced a white helmet that Neil had custom painted localy, it is a special Tribute Helmet to his late Grandfather and he will wear it on his adventure across the USA.
” ….the helmet is a tribute to my Grandad KIA in WW2 whilst serving with the Royal Artillery. The first time I wear this while riding will be when I take part in the wounded soldiers on tour at the end May 2012. Our aim is to give wounded soldiers free trips either on the pacific coast highway or route 66. We also aim to raise £250,000 for 5 service charity’s which are the Poppy appeal, BLESMA (British limbless ex servicemen’s assoc.), Combat Stress, the Afghan trust and the Forces children’s trust.
Should anyone want to help they can either sponsor part of the wounded soldiers costs, volunteer as a rider to take one of the soldiers pillion, buy one of the limited edition Marco Simoncelli prints or advertising space on the web site or they can donate to the 5 charity’s. Here are the links to the sight and mine and Keith’s page. Regards Neil and thanks again for your support will send pictures and video clips when i get back !”
