Penrith-based multiple British Superbike champions, Paul Bird Motorsport, has teamed up with a local charity, Hospice at Home Carlisle and North Lakeland, for whom they will raise funds this year.

Team owner Paul Bird, who is Cumbrian born and bred, wanted to build on the success of last year’s charitable fundraising which saw more than £15,000 raised for local charities including Down’s syndrome, for whom he remains an ambassador, and has set his target at £50,000.

 

Earlier today, at the team’s headquarters in Langwathby, two Health Care Assistants from Hospice at Home, Emma Evans and Hannah Whitfield, met with Paul Bird and the team, to formally announce the agreement which will see the charity benefit from the unique association with Paul’s team.

 

PBM and the Be Wiser Ducati British Superbike team will be supporting the fundraising efforts of Hospice at Home throughout the season as well as organising a number of their own fundraisers such as selling scratch cards with instant prizes and official revenue generators including a text raffle.

 

During the summer, the team plans a high-profile chat show in Cumbria featuring 2019 Be Wiser Ducati riders Scott Redding and Josh Brookes whereby details will be announced soon. The evening will also feature an auction and raffle with all proceeds going to Hospice at Home.

 

Emma Evans, Health Care Assistant: “It’s great that such a professional and successful racing team such as PBM Be Wiser Ducati has chosen us as their designated charity. It’s fantastic that the Lake District is represented in this fashion and we can’t thank Paul and his team enough. We look forward to working with them this year and everyone is very excited.”

 

Paul Bird, Team Owner: “It’s our pleasure to nominate Hospice at Home as our designated charity and we look forward to helping them raise funds for this very worthwhile cause. I’m very proud of my Lake District roots and it’s important to both me and the team that we retain a local connection. We proved last year that we can help raise money for worthy causes, so the plan now is to raise at least £50,000 for Hospice at Home.”
