24 hour Commute for Macmillan

Posted August 28th, 2012 in News Leave a comment

As part of their charitable efforts for Macmillan Cancer Support the sales team at Colin Appleyard Motorcycles are to carry out a 24 hour sponsored Commut-a-thon. The gruelling event will start outside the multi-franchise dealer`s Keighley showroom on Wellington Road at 3pm on Friday 31st August and run through the night finishing mid-afternoon the following day.

The team will take it in turns to ride a Yamaha Vity 125cc scooter, which on a daily basis is an ideal commuter bike, comfortably achieving 100miles to the gallon and costing just £16 a year in road tax.

Colin Appleyard Motorcycles General Manager Kevin Feeny said “Macmillan Cancer Support is the company`s chosen charity of the year so we wanted to support this very worthy cause by doing something a little different. Yamaha have kindly contributed to the cost of the scooter which we will raffle off after the event with the proceeds going to Macmillan”.

He added “We`re looking to turn it into a bit of a fun event and would encourage everyone to come along to support us and also give generously. Whether they stay all night remains to be seen!”

The Commut-a-thon mirrors a similar event organised by Kevin`s father Stuart 35 years ago when the Lord Mayor of Keighley turned up to cheer the riders on.

Raffle tickets for the Yamaha Vity scooter worth over £1500 cost just £5 each and will be available on the day or via the company`s website: www.colinappleyard.com The draw will take place on Friday 14th September.
