Jim and Philip

Quite apart from my friendship with Phillip and Mike, I admire the level of commitment and determination and skill displayed by pioneers like “Poppa” Guttmann, more especially when we consider the world circumstances current when he first came to the UK.

My wish is to generate as much cash as possible for the charity, realistically, I do not expect massive numbers of bikers to take the trip.  However with your help in “spreading the word” we could realistically expect massive numbers of bikers to make a wee contribution direct to the Charity’s website.

Jim at Stoke

My name is Jim Humphreys, I live in Berkshire between Maidenhead and Reading and have mutual friends in Dave Dew and Julian Clements at Motocom.

I recently became involved in a money raising effort for the spinal injuries unit at Stoke Mandeville, specific details on our efforts can be found at www.poppaguttmanncelebration.org. our main objectives are to honour the man responsible for most of the development work which resulted in the survival of severely damaged friends and others, from the services, from accidents, from “happenstance” and terrorism.  Some of those being motorcyclists, I felt that I and some friends could afford the time to ride from Moscow, Ayrshire to Moscow, Russian Federation and back to assist in raising funds.

Motocom have been extremely generous in donation, advice and in steering me towards several potential assistance centres.
