Bridgestone Bikers Club riding for Japan
Motorcyclists looking to combine a day out with helping a good cause may be interested in an event organised by the Bridgestone Biker’s Club. Scheduled for Sunday June 5, the biker meet will start from Wheelhouse Tyres in Birmingham; money raised will used to help victims of Japan’s recent earthquake and tsunami.
The entry fee for participants is £10 which will be donated to the Japanese Red Cross. The entry donation will cover riders’ entry to the meet, a gift bag and refreshments, courtesy of Bridgestone. Entertainment will be provided by a DJ and a VIP will greet riders and draw raffle winners. The raffle will be offered at £10 a ticket, with prizes such as a Biker’s World Retail Voucher, Bridgestone biker apparel, a signed helmet and 2 places at the Ron Haslam Race School Silverstone which are all up for grabs.
“Bridgestone is a Japanese company and in the wake of the tragic events which devastated Japan, we want to offer any relief we can to those affected by this disaster,” said Bridgestone UK communications manager Andy Dingley. “We are hoping to raise lots of money for the cause, whilst offering bikers a fun event.”
