Why Help For Heroes cheque has real meaning
There was special meaning when Gargrave brewery employee Glyn Tattersall and his teenage daughter Francesca competed in Bradford Motor Club’s Trial at Harden in June.
The event was held to raise money for the Help For Heroes appeal, and Glyn’s 19-year-old nephew Christopher Kershaw from Bradford was among five soldiers killed in Afghanistan earlier this year when their tank was blown up by a landmine.
On Saturday, Bradford Motor Club official Mr Ron Eddings handed over a cheque for £2,000 to the Tattersalls, which will be paid into the charity.
The event was well supported by competitors and by Keighley brewers Timothy Taylor Championship Beers, who donated a barrel of beer to help the entrants cool down afterwards.
Timothy Taylor’s supports the Yorkshire Regiment and have recently marketed a special beer under the name of Havercake.
The company will donate ten pence to the Yorkshire Regiment funds for every pint of the new brew is sold.
Several other major motor cycle trials sport clubs have been following the Bradford Motor Club policy of supporting the charity.
