Over £4,000 raised for Help for Heroes at Vines BMW Bikes.
On Friday 20 November our Guildford Motorrad dealership hosted a charity evening in aid of Help for Heroes. Over 250 people turned up to hear the comedic tales from Austin Vince’s around the world travels, enjoy an army curry and music from the army band.
Upon arrival guests were welcomed with a complimentary drink from our friends at Hogs Back Brewery and music by Elliott Frisby, before feasting on a wonderful curry served up in the army tent outside the showroom.
