Adam Roynon is still joining us on Thursday night (21st June) despite his recent serious arm and shoulder injuries.

Come and join us and show your support for all injured riders who need a bit of financial help.

All money raised on the night will be given to the Speedway Riders Benevolent Fund.

Just to let you know that we had an interesting, absorbing and emotional evening. Robbo picked up a late guest booking at Sheffield so our guests were Paul Ackroyd, Adam Roynon, Garry Stead and Ricky Ashworth. Bert Harkins also supported the event and joined the panel for the second half of the evening.

After presenting Ricky and Garry with their 2006 British Final race jackets and framed photos from Jeff Davies the audience were informed and entertained by our guests. Most were surprised as to the lengths the SRBF goes to and the speed with which they offer support to the injured riders' families. 

The SRBF is unique in the speedway world and should be cherished and supported wherever possible.

At the end of the evening we'd collected £410.10 for the Ben' Fund......Bert Harkins drew his own ticket in the raffle......and there was a standing ovation for Ricky Ashworth.

The NSSC will round up the collection to £500 and donate it to the Speedway Riders' Benevolent Fund.

A huge thank you to our guests and also the audience for giving so generously.
