Help for Heroes
Local BMW motorcycle specialists Vines of Guildford have recently raised over £7,000 for Help for Heroes. Part of the highly respected Vines Group, the Guildford dealership has been avidly supporting the charity since 2009. Organising various charity evenings, they have pulled in quite the crowd, as well as a host of well-known guest speakers and presenters including Charley Boorman and Ross Noble.
Earlier this year, over 300 guests from the local area purchased tickets for their latest event – An Evening with Charley Boorman. Guests were treated to a curry from the Army Kitchen and beverages from the Hogs Back Brewery before settling down to the main event. To round off the evening, and raising a significant sum, as well as many laughs, an auction compeered by the wonderfully witty Ross Noble included prizes such as World of BMW Off Road Skills courses with Simon Pavey, cut and colour for two at TIGI Bed Head Studio in Battersea and a golf experience for four at Sunningdale Golf Club.
This event alone raised £6,500 for Help for Heroes and in total the dealership has raised over £13,000 for the charity in the last 3 years.
This fantastic achievement would not have been possible without the support of those who donate the auction gifts and give their time and energy to help organise these events, and of course the guests from the local community who generously purchase tickets.
These events are not merely for motorcycle enthusiasts but for anyone who is keen to help raise money for charity whilst having a good, fun evening out, with food and laughs guaranteed. Keep an eye out for future events and be sure to bag yourself a place.
