The reason for requesting a turn out? Well, in the spirit of getting our name out there, I had arranged for us to meet the Conservative Candidate for St Austell & Newquay, Steve Double and his wife Anne whom I had made contact with a couple of weeks ago. It soon became apparent that they had not heard of us even though they had seen the bikes around the County and were under the impression, as most people are, that we were part of the NHS.
After the greetings had been made, we made our way into the Diner to warm up and get a coffee, and it was now that their eyes were opened to all the aspects of the Charity, especially when shown the statistics and money involved with running the Charity and the amount of cash that we save the NHS Trusts within the county. They showed great enthusiasm to support us, not only through word of mouth, but by also requesting our permission to use a few pictures of us in their literature which has been allowed.
Steve has a couple of Charities that he raises money for and would like to include us at some stage with his money raising efforts which I believe should be fully supported; so Anne Double produced a very Gucci camera and did the honours.
Later on that night, I received an email from Anne to say that they had been very impressed with the guys, the bikes and the invaluable service that we provide. They shall be at the April gig; I can only hope that the weather warms up and at least it won’t be Valentine’s Day, so I won’t get any more agro from the wife about who I love more….Blood Bikes/Wife….let me think!!
