1. So I’m pleased to announce that Bikes Against Bullies UK has its first ever committee. Your committee is:

President/Chairman               Christopher Cooper

V.P/Vice Chairman                  Colin Lawrie

Website                                    Mark Hawkins

Press Relations                       Jillian Eastwood

Gerry Carrigan

John Shawcross

Treasurer (non committee) Tracey Cooper

Over the next week or so the committee will be looking at organisational/charity rules and will be putting their recommendation to the group – for a members vote as to which we become.

We will be also working on a Rules/Statement for Bikes Against Bullies, detailing our rules, financial year and so on, again this will need a vote for ratification purposes.

2. This Sunday (25/9/16) we have a support event for a very special boy in the Furness (South Cumbria) area who has Dravet Syndrome. Were going as a group to show our support to him and his family. Gerry Carrigan is doing an amazing sponsored ride, with a total mileage in excess of 300 on just a 125cc Bike. Please show your support by making a donation on the www.bikesagainstbullies.co.uk page, following the link to our Just Giving page. If just one FB like can be matched with a £1 donation we raise some serious funds which are to be spit with a Dravet charity chosen by the lads parents. You can also get involved on the day just pm us via our facebook page if your interested in taking part.

3. Lastly September is suicide awareness month. We haven’t forgotten – were just struggling in making contact with family members of those children who have sadly passed, before we share posts. Please share our image we have for our event on the 30th September when were asking everyone to light a candle in your window to raise awareness.

As always if you hear or know anyone who may need our support please direct them or get in touch personally to let us know.
