Riders for Health have raised £3200 in just thirty minutes at Motorcycle Live, with the UK government’s commitment to matching funding meaning that £6400 will be donated towards the charity’s work providing motorcycle transport for African medical workers.

The auction consisted of a selection of prints from Motorcycle News contributors David Goldman (Gold & Goose), Graeme Brown (GeeBee Images), James Wright (Double Red Photographic) and Stephen Davison (Pacemaker Press), with images from the past year in MotoGP, WSB, BSB and road racing.

The highest selling image on the day was a print of Valentino Rossi, which went for £1150, while auctioneer Toby moody was joined on stage by Bruce Anstey and John McGuinness to sell off images of the TT stars.

Riders will be at the NEC show all week, from 22 – 30 November on stand 2A19, and will also be running their Helmet Park during the event. Anyone arriving by bike will be able to leave their helmets and leathers securely in the Helmet Park in return for a small donation, which will also be matched by the UK government.
