Many businesses have been hit hard by the last few months, but The National Motorcycle Museum is in danger of not re-opening due to the losses they’ve incurred as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. That’s why they’re asking for help.
Museum Director James Hewing explained: “Without the income from our three sister businesses, the museum may not be able to reopen, and then remain open until they return to normal trading.The museum itself requires a surplus of around £500,000 per year just to break even. Therefore, on Friday 17/07/20, the museum will be launching an appeal which gives people the chance to help us raise the £500,000 required in two different ways”
There are two ways you can support the Solihull-based bastion of biking; you can go to the website and donate to the reopening appeal fund – or you can buy tickets for their new raffle…
As always, there are some special bikes up for grabs in the raffle. The first prize is a brand new (old stock, obviously) 850cc Norton Commando from 1977. Second and third prizes are good too – second is an immaculately restored 1948 Ariel NG 350, and third is a restored 1959 BSA B31 350. Tickets cost just £6 each.
The draw will be held just before Christmas so, if you’re fortunate, you’ll have one hell of a Christmas present, AND you’ll be helping part of Britain’s biking heritage! For more information, click HERE.
