Wakefield MAG representatives were invited to the Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club (VJMC) West Yorkshire Branch Awards evening, held on Tuesday 27th October, at the Horse & Groom, Heath, Wakefield. VJMC hosted the awards evening to present their charity cheques, from the proceeds of their highly successful and well attended Lotherton Hall Japanese Bike Show, held in July.
The show this year raised nearly £9,000, which was split between 5 very worthy charities:
Representatives of all the charities were in attendance to receive their donations, along with the scouts who manage the car / bike parking and helmet park at the show.
The show has been run over the last 12 years and just short of £100,000 has been donated to local charities over that time. What an fantastic result !!!!
Wakefield MAG were thanked for our help throughout the day with marshalling the various show gates. We provided a dozen marshals, who worked various shifts, over the course of the day. Our assistance freed up the VJMC members, so they were able to better marshal and manage the show itself. And what a show it was, with some cracking bikes on display (see our event report).
Following the charity awards was the buffet, laid on by the VJMC. All our marshals also received a souvenir Lotherton Hall Bike Show mug. Many Thanks to the VJMC for inviting us along and we will definitely be helping marshal this most excellent event again, next July.
