Charity Events

Yes charity. Us biker types ain't all 'orrible you know. The Taffs have been doing charity events for years. What's more, we always have fun doing it too! Some examples of things we've done are detailed below. unfortunately, we couldn't find much in the way of photos. One that you should have seen was our bogey race last year for the George Thomas Hospice fund. There's no pics of the Taffs 'Welsh coast in 24hrs' run either (we'd all have appreciated a picture of the scene after Sluggo fell asleep on the hired Electraglide Classic), but his passenger was a bit pissed about it.

Sponsored football match against our regular opponents.

This sponsored football match was the first charity event that the Taffs did in conjunction with another group of Cardiff bikers. Louis (well known round these parts) pulled together some mates in order to do something for charity. They decided to throw down the gauntlet to the Taff Riders and thereby douvling the sponsorship. Such a good plan that LOUIS & CO. have become our opposing team in any other event that either group comes up with. We did a bogey race once and it was a cracker. Our next bogey race is mentioned below.

Our snack counter at the S.Wales Sunbeam MCCs Classic Bike Show.

This year, on April 6th & 7th, the South Wales Sunbeam Motorcycle Club hosted the 13th Classic Motorcycle Show at Llanishen high school, Cardiff.
We've put on a club stand there for years. This year, we decided to sell tea, coffee & snacks on our stand with the proceeds going to LATCH - a local charity based at Llandough hospital with Aims to Treat Children with cancer and leukaemia with Hope.
We've written them a cheque for 400.oo. & collected nearly 80 around the show.

THE SUNBEAM CLASSIC MOTORCYCLE SHOW WILL NOT BE HELD THIS YEAR!!! We don't know why, but it probably won't be held again, unless somebody was to take it over.

Bogey Race at Ball Rd. Hill, Llanrumney.

 

On the Sunday of the Jubilee weekend we, along with Louis & his croneys risked life and limb on behalf of the PDSA. Sounds good, but the reality is we all had a good laugh freewheeling some weird and wonderful home made bogeys down a big hill, and the PDSA got just short of 400 as well!
Nobody was injured, although a few tumbled. I cant remember the winners names now, but fair play their bogey was wicked. We, the Taffs came in last and last but one, but we were awarded a wicked foil covered trophy for runners up.
