Foundation appeal for Paul Shoesmith memorial

Joey Dunlop Foundation seek permanent tribute

The Joey Dunlop Foundation has launched a new appeal for a Paul Shoesmith memorial bench.

Once enough funds have been raised, it will placed next to the Simon Andrews'  bench.

Paul brought Simon Andrews to the TT as a newcomer.

Foundation Trustee Kevin Quirk says it's a separate appeal as all other funds are being used on the construction of extra apartments.

He adds that Paul Shoesmith did a great deal of unseen work for charities.
