https://womt.co.uk & https://rmtnet.co.uk
Women Only Motorcycle Training (WOMT for short), recently organised and hosted a motorcycle charity ride for Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust on Sunday 07 October 2018..
The charity was chosen by Claire Flatt, a friend of owner Laura, who has both 2b cervical cancer and stage 3 breast cancer, both primaries – she was diagnosed at just 33. Claire decided to set her friends and family challenges to help raise money for both Cancer Research and Macmillan, both had been pivotal in her care and treatment. Originally, hoping to raise £5k, she has now reached over a staggering £22k.
Being such a positive and strong woman Claire inspired Laura to get involved and try and raise some money too. Claire chose the charity Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust, hoping that by raising awareness and educating local women in the community more of them would attend their smears. Shockingly smear test attendance is down in the West Midlands and yet it’s benefits can detect early signs of cervical cancer and even prevent the cancer from developing.
On the day over 85 bikes attended the ride out on one of sunniest day in October, from learners to advanced riders and everything in-between. Each bike paid £10 and raffle tickets were purchased by riders on the day, for prizes including Advanced Training days donated by RMT Motorcycle Training, Sports Bike Shop vouchers, battery chargers, hoodies, bike jackets and much more.
For those that couldn’t attend, WOMT set up a JustGiving page and for every person that donated £5 they were also entered into the raffle. Overall an astonishing £2,311.05 was raised, all of which will be going to Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust.
