The Injured Riders’ Welfare Fund will benefit this season from a successful Ulster Grand Prix.

The group has been selected by Ulster GP organisers as the chosen charity for August’s meeting.

North Armagh Motorcycling and Car Club’s Sheila Sinton is a founder member of the Injured Riders’ Welfare Fund.

“We try and raise as much money throughout the year so we can support riders and their families financially,” said Jan Simm, another one of the 2003 founder members. “All money raised goes straight to the riders, as opposed to being spent on administration.

“We are delighted to be the chosen charity for this year’s Ulster Grand Prix, it is a huge deal for us.

“We offer this service to riders from all over Ireland and those who come from other countries and are injured here.

“The Fund also covers the costs of travel to hospital and treatment.

“It’s not just about giving people money, it’s about giving them that support and comfort.”

Forthcoming fundraising events leading up to the Ulster GP include a sponsored walk on Sunday, August 7 plus table quiz and charity auction.
