CASTLE MOTORCYCLES & BSB MOTORS

 

PCUK supporting BLACK 

 

I am pleased to announce that CASTLE MOTORCYCLES of Castleford, Yorkshire, agreed to support PROSTATE CANCER UK and are sponsoring me in the organisation and launch of this, my third and 10 day epic journey across the UK.

CASTLE MOTORCYCLES are the most pre-eminent HONDA dealership in the North and I thank them for their commitment to the cause and their willingness to assist me in my efforts to further raise the public's awareness of this debilitating condition.

I am fuelling up at BSB MOTORS in Normanton and officially setting off from Castle's showroom on Sunday the 1st July.

Then calling at Squires Cafe, Sherburn-in- Elmet, for breakfast, before setting off on my first leg to Dunfermline.

Castle Motorcycles will open at 09.00 hrs on that day, for coffee and a photo-shoot.

I am hoping that some of you may wish to join me on part of this first leg and would ask you to register your interest, either with me or Castle Motorcycles directly.

Meet either at CASTLE MOTORCYCLES or SQUIRES.

UPDATED 12/05

THE ROYAL WEDDING DAY

CASTLE MOTORCYCLES is holding a promotional public event on Saturday the 19th May in support of PROSTATE CANCER UK and to also publicise my charity ride in July.

Having secured the sponsorship of CASTLE MOTORCYCLES takes care of issues relating to the wider marketing of my ride, the maintenance and servicing of my motorbike in preparation for the journey and products support.

ADDITIONAL SPONSORSHIP

I am pleased to announce the additional involvement of BSB MOTORS of Normanton - located opposite Lidl, who have agreed to underwrite the total costs of the FUEL on my charity ride.

ACCOMMODATION, ETC
 

I'm now left with the challenge of finding a third sponsor to cover my

the accommodation and nutritional costs of my ride.

I will need to sleep, eat and drink, if I am to safely complete the trip.

 

I've calculated that the total bill, including the use of modest accommodation (combination of B&B's & Camping Sites) and nutrition, amounts to £400 [Accommodation £300] [Sustenance £100]

ACCOUNTABILITY

Please note that as stated in my mission statement, appropriate receipts for all expenses will be obtained and made available for scrutiny after the event.

As you may already know, recent statistics now show that more men are being diagnosed and dying of prostate cancer than women with breast cancer. This is shocking and we men must do something about this.

It's virtually Men United v/s Prostate Cancer. So Join Up. Get Involved.

I am currently engaged in conversations with potential sponsors and will let you know how I get on.

It would be great to get some help towards making this a bigger event and reap the rewards of an increase in the public's awareness of this illness.
