Bike firms raise £10k+ for ambulance fund

John McGuinness to be presented with cheque

Specially signed and desgined t-shirts have gone a long way to helping the Manx Grand Prix Supporters' Club helicopter ambulance fund - courtesy of two motorbike firms.

Wemoto and the Isle of Man section of the Vintage Motorcycle Club (VMCC) sold hundreds of them at this year's Festival of Motorcyling.

The t-shirts had been signed by TT stars John McGuinness, Michael Rutter and Connor Cummins and raised a total of £10,655.92.

John McGuinness will be presented with a cheque by racer-turned-broadcaster Steve Plater on Saturday, November 17th in front of the Classic Motorcycle Mechanics stand at the Stafford Show.
