Fund Raising for St Wilfrid's Hospice, Eastbourne - 120mph Speed Record at Bonneville Salt Flats, USA

Fund Raising for St. Wilfrid's Hospice

 

In August 2022, one of our colleagues, Andy Banfield, is raising money for his local Hospice - St. Wilfrid's - by going to Bonneville Salt Flats in the USA to try and go over 120mph on his 1968 T120 Triumph Bonneville.  Given that Andy will be 67 by the time the trip happens, it's going to be a dangerous but exciting challenge!  Andy's JustGiving page is HERE

Here is a brief explanation from Andy : 

"In memory of Dave Goodman a great friend to all and a loved family man, his life cut short with cancer, so I will be entering the world famous Bonneville Salt Flats Land speed records week in America August 2022 to raise funds for St Wilfrid's.

The task is for my 54 year old motorcycle and by then a 67 year old biker to exceed 120 mph (a World Record) on a road legal 1968 T120 Triumph Bonneville which my brother and I have owned since 1977!"

We understand that it is a difficult time for everyone with living costs increasing, but if you are able to donate even just a small amount it will really help St Wilfrid's continue to give caring and compassionate end of life care to their patients.  Here is a link to Andy's JustGiving page - https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/worldsfastest1968truimphbonnevilleroadlegal

We will copy in links to all the different social media accounts as they come online.  Please note that every penny raised goes direct to St Wilfrid's Hospice, Andy is covering his own costs to get to and participate in the Speed Records at Bonneville Salt Flats in the USA! 

If there are any businesses out there who are able to help Andy directly to cover the substantial costs in getting the bike and associated back up parts to the USA with some personal sponsorship, please email Helmet City HERE and we will put you in contact with Andy directly.
