Cheques totalling £11,500 were handed to three charities following this summer’s Brackley Festival of Motorcycling.

In August an estimated 15,000 people flocked to Brackley town centre after it was turned into a motorbike arena.

Motorcycle News described the event as one of UK motorcyling’s greatest days out.

This year proceeds were split between the Warks and Northants Air Ambulance, Katherine House Hospice, and the Brackley Food Bank.

WNAA spokesman Tracy Grunwell said she was glad to see the support of people in Brackley and added: “The support is amazing. Obviously we get no government or lottery funding, so every penny helps saves lives.

“And the WNAA go to a lot of motorbike crashes so it’s good to see so much money donated by the motorcycle fraternity.”
