Cheeky chaps ride naked for charity

Members of a classic motorcycle club have stripped down to their boots and been photographed posing with their machines to raise money for charity...

The images have been used to create a cheeky calendar which will be sold to raise funds for the Spinal Injuries Association. One picture shows East Northants Classic Motorcycle Club members sitting naked in a barn with their bikes, tents and camping gear. Another shows a man wearing nothing but a flat cap and boots staring intently ahead as he sits astride his motorcycle.

The association’s individual and community fundraising manager Elizabeth Wright said: “We are always looking for new and fun ways to raise money as we have to find £2 million a year to fund our vital services. We receive no Government funding so we rely on entirely voluntary donations.”

The association raises awareness of spinal cord injuries resulting from motorcycle accidents.

Three people a day are paralysed for life through damage to the spinal cord with around 40,000 in the UK living with spinal cord injury.

The calendar costs £9.99 and is available through the club website www.eastnorthantsclassicmcc.co.uk or by phone from the Spinal Injuries Association on 0845 071 4350.

Meanwhile model engineering enthusiasts are in for a treat when a show opens later this month. The Midlands Model Engineering Exhibition takes place at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre from October 17-21.

It will feature two exhibition halls packed with nearly 1000 models, demonstrations, indoor and outdoor displays and more than 40 leading specialist suppliers.

More than 40 clubs and societies will be showcasing members’ work this year. For more information visit www.midlandsmodelengineering.co.uk
