MP congratulates biker fundraising heroes

ANDREW Gwynne, MP for Denton and Reddish, has congratulated Alan Coates, Bob Taylor and The British Motorcycle Preservation Society for their tireless fundraising in the local community. 

Mr Coates is a long standing member of the British Motorcycle Preservation Society (Manchester Branch) and last weekend alongside fellow member Bob Taylor organised a Rock ‘n Roll charity event in conjunction with the Globe Cafe in Dukinfield. The event, attended by Gwynne raised £232 for Prostate Cancer UK – which is the Preservation Society’s “Charity of the Year”.

Over the years, Coates and the Society have raised in excess of £35,000 for a variety of fantastic causes. In addition to the recent event at the Globe Cafe, Coates is also in the process of selling his various spares online and donating a portion of the proceeds to Prostate Cancer UK.

Mr Coates’ efforts, coupled with the recent event at the Globe means that he and the Society have helped raise a mammoth £11,493 for Prostate Cancer UK.

Commenting on the achievement, Andrew Gwynne said:

“Alan and the British Motorcycle Preservation Society are doing some incredible work in raising money for great causes.

I was lucky enough to go along to the Rock ‘n Roll event on Sunday, and had a brilliant time. There were some incredible bikes and fantastic music. A big thank you to Alan, Bob and the Globe Cafe for having me.

People like Alan and Bob make me so proud to represent Tameside, and I can’t wait to see what they get up to next!”
