The 2020 Aprilia RSV4 1100 Factory Demo Bike up for grabs.

Portadown-based McCrum’s Motorcycles are raffling off a fantastic motorbike in aid of Air Ambulance NI.

Bike fans will have the fantastic chance to get their hands of this 2020 Aprilia RSV4 1100 Factory Demo model with all profits above the cost of the bike going to the local charity.

In all, 1200 tickets are available with a cost of £20 each and potential to raise £6,000 for the charity should all tickets be sold.

The triumphant ticket holder will win this Superbike valued at around £22,000 from new!

Wes McCrum, who is organising the raffle and owner of the motorcycle business explained why he wanted to support the charity.

He said: “The Air Ambulance provides a vital service that the biking community truly value. We know times are hard for charities and this is our way of doing something different in very uncertain times.”

Charity representative, Kerry Anderson, commented: “We are extremely grateful to McCrum’s Motorcycles for thinking of Air Ambulance NI.

“The motorcycle community of Northern Ireland have been such a fantastic support to the charity. Any donation from the raffle will help with several costs including helicopter maintenance and fuel.

“The medical team are needed on average one to two occasions each day to help seriously ill and injured patients which can be the difference between life and death.”

Anyone wishing to buy a ticket can purchase through PayPal using the info@mccrums.co.uk email address using ‘Friends and Family’ option. All terms and conditions are on the McCrum’s Motorcycles Facebook Page.

Air Ambulance NI aspires to raise £2 million each year to sustain this service so public donations are crucial. Fundraising has been severely impacted by Covid-19.

If you would like to donate, organise an event or could spare some time volunteering, contact Air Ambulance NI by email at info@airambulanceni.org or call 028 9262 2677.
