Club raises £1000 for Hospice
The Isle of Wight Motorcycle Club is proud to present a cheque for £1000 to the Earl Mountbatten Hospice, in memory of the late Nigel Mason Crouch. Hospice staff made it possible for Nigel to be looked after at home, supporting both Nigel & Jo Crouch, during the later stages of his illness..... Nigel sadly passed away on the 27th January 2018 following a short battle with pancreatic cancer. Nigel had been involved with the Club for well over 50 years and he served as the Club’s Hon Treasurer for over 30 of those years - during that time he became to be one of the Club’s most respected and much loved characters and he is sadly missed..... The funds have been raised in a variety of ways beginning with a collection in February at the Club’s Annual Awards evening along with more fund raising at the Club’s flagship annual event, The Wight Two Day Trial..... The Club’s Committee happily agreed to make the funds raised up to an even £1000...... Hospice Director of Nursing, Liz Arnold thanked the Club “for raising such an amazing amount”...... The Cheque was presented to Hospice staff, by Club Vice President, Wayne Brodie, on Friday 27th July...... Nigel’s beloved 1967 Greeves Anglian trials bike is pictured at the presentation......
