Injured veterans to experience TT

Holiday of a lifetime for British servicemen

Preparations are almost complete for the Joey Dunlop Foundation to welcome a group of injured British Army veterans to this year's Isle of Man TT.

Twelve of them are coming over, and staying at the charity's complex at Braddan Bridge.

Kevin Quirk of the JDF says they are currently finalising the hiring of a minibus from Bus Vannin.

The mini-invasion starts when the ex-soldiers arrive on the SeaCat on 30 May.

The Foundation is now looking for the Island to offer them something special.

Kevin says the charity has been in discussion about the trip for three years, and he's pleased that demand is so high.

He hopes that the TT will prove the 'holiday of a lifetime' for the veterans.
