Ricky's Big Day. Benefit Meeting.

Recommended Posts

Hi , I was stood right next to you when you purchased the Ricky Ashworth Bike Covers - delighted you got them and had a safe journey home , I had a superb day and seeing Ricky in the car and speaking to his dad in the Panorama Bar was humbling , weather was great , the riders all played there part and I thought I had the winning bid of £200 for the Race Jacket signed by all the riders but was delighted it squeezed another £10 and every penny counts , wasn't going to deny Stead his race jacket back ! and the daughter is delighted that I purchased her the Auty Race Jacket as she quite a fan .... got home gone midnight with a smile still on my face , the Speedway community did Ricky proud - was a truly superb day organised by Julie Reading etc who deserve all the praise in the world for there dedication and effort to have got this meeting on and for it to have gone as smoothly as it did - Many Thanks from Chris and Lauren Rigby to Julie -

Great stuff, glad you got Josh's race jacket :) I agree, it was an absolutely brilliant and very memorable day!

WHAT A BRILLIANT DAY OUT. Speedway fans always pull together to help riders, & today was no exception. The cheering when Ricky went round the track sent a tingle down my spine. Congratulations to Steady, a very popular winner, & a top bloke for buying his race jacket back. Even Coops got in on the act by beating the Pole.

So pleased to see a huge turnout for this meeting.

Definitely a PLRC level crowd and a lovely sunny day a bonus. Didn't think much of the racing, one or two good heats, but who cares?

Still the bag searches before entering, but not all of em ;)

So pleased there was a huge turnout for the event - I read the article in the speedway star long road ahead. Glad the riders supported it.

I'm so pleased that there was a big turn out for Ricky.

 

I hope that the proceeds may help with his continued improvement.

At Newcastle's Speedway Supporters Club's Meet the Rider night on Sunday night, we raised £200 for Ricky's Fund from donations.

Brilliant thanks T

Brilliant thanks T

 

I have mentioned before that I deliberately wouldn't go to the meeting so I could give everything I would have spent to Ricky and passed on a couple of hundred notes in various forms to go directly to him. It is great to see many others who chose to do that as well. With things such as the Edinburgh soccer match, Newcastle club night, Magic and Benji's bike ride, Scunthorpe darts match and loads more hopefully contributions from the crowd on the day will be greatly swelled.

 

I hope I don't come across as negative here but brilliant as this all is this is not the end of it all. I personally see it as the start for Ricky. I'd like to think positively that however long it may take, he will continue to progress and that all along he will still get our support. Why not make it a resolution to do an annual contribution or even a monthly one to his fund so he need never go wanting? I know I will

Well said. Just shows how good Speedway can be, and all 29 heats were completed in 2 hours 25 minutes.

Please send a cheque for £4 payable to Rickys Big Day, they are A5 in size so will need an A4 SAE (large letter stamp) & post C/O Sheffield Window Centre, 60-70 Broad Lane, Sheffield. S1 4B.

 

Mark the envelope FAO Julie please.
