The Mourne Motorcycle Club will hold their tenth annual charity grasstrack racing event at Millbridge, Ballynahinch, on Wednesday, June 22.

Each year the club picks two charities that have touched the lives of club members, their families, or the community and this has led to it presenting more than £60,000 to seventeen different charities and charitable causes since 2007.

This year the club has decided to raise monies for Camphill Grange House, to which a club member’s family has close ties, and RNLI Lifeboats Newcastle Station, which is an invaluable asset to our local community that we are pleased to be supporting.

Speaking ahead of the latest charity event Mourne club assistant Chairman Matthew King said, “to have presented more than £60,000 to charitable causes in the last nine years is something that everyone in the Mourne club can certainly be proud of.

“It wouldn’t be possible without the club members and friends of the club who make it happen, the competitors who take part and of course the generosity of the local community who have helped us to support so many worthwhile causes so far.

“This year we are supporting another two fantastic local causes and hopefully we will have another busy night, raising monies for Camphill Grange House and the RNLI Lifeboats Newcastle Station,” he said.

This year the evening of racing will start at 6pm with solo motorbikes, sidecars, classic bikes and quads all competing in different classes.
