Suzuki raising money for UK childrens charity

MotoGP team Rizla Suzuki are helping UK charity Sportslink to raise money for children with life shortening conditions, by donating an extra special day out at Donington Park, to be auctioned off to the highest bidder.

The package being provided by the Suzuki team will give the winner two VIP tickets for the MotoGP round at Donington next June, including full hospitality treatment and a chance to meet riders Chris Vermeulen and Loris Capirossi with all proceeds from the online auction going to Sportslink.

In the first of what will become a regular six monthly auction, around 80 items are currently under bids on the website www.sportslink.org.uk with the aim of raising funds to take children with life shortening conditions on days out at major sporting events.

Sportslink have had prizes donated by 25 leading sports organisations and commercial groups, from the worlds of boxing, cricket, football, motorsports and rugby and the funds collected will help to take children from the Helen and Douglas Home in Oxford, England, on exciting and fulfilling days out.

Sportslink organiser Nigel Hunt commented: Weve been able to do this for some time thanks to the generosity of a number of major sports teams. What the auction will now enable us to do is to widen the scope and scale of this activity and organise travel and hospitality at each event at our own cost.

Were extremely grateful to those individuals and organisations who have generously donated items for the December auction. However, in order to run the auction on a regular basis we need more people and organisations to donate signed sporting memorabilia.
