Recently, it was revealed that Mark Hucklebridge is about to embark on another fight. So, the MX community is getting together on various projects to help raise money for the RUH, who have helped Mark through his current treatment and in the past also. RUH are trying to raise money for a cancer unit; they hope to build the best cancer centre for a district general hospital in the UK.
The MX Nationals directors have got together and announced that there will be a collection throughout the weekend at the opening round. The admission will be raised from £5 for an adult to £6, and £1 of every admission ticket that is purchased will go towards Mark’s chosen charity, Forever Friends appeal.
For those of you who are not up to speed on Mark’s condition, please head to this page to learn more: https://www.facebook.com/notes/hope-for-huck-appeal
James Burfield (MX Nationals Director): When we heard the news we all wanted to try and do something. Paul, Neil and myself discussed various ways to try and help, and this was the most logical and effective step. By raising the admission ticket price by £1, we are hoping that the promotion we are putting in will bring in a bumper crowd. With collections during the day, we are really hoping that we can make a difference by giving over a substantial cheque to Mark and Emma. It is important that as a community we all do our bit, no matter how big or small.
