Fenlanders Donation to East Anglian Air Ambulance

Established in 1991, over the years the Fenlanders Harley-Davidson Owners Group (H.O.G.) have done a huge amount to help raise funds for local and national charities. Their commitment to helping to keep important causes well-funded and to raise awareness for vital causes has always been a major selling point of their overall appeal.

However, the Fenlanders H.O.G. Chapter have recently undergone a massive fundraising campaign. Sponsored by the Newmarket Harley-Davidson dealership, this chapter have undertaken a huge range of fundraising events to bring in valuable revenue for a vital service in the local area.

The East Anglian Air Ambulance team provide an extensive, vital service across the whole local area. They don’t just work to keep motorcyclists safe, though; they work to keep the whole East Anglia area safe. The work diligently and put themselves in the crosshairs of danger time and time again to save people.

However, unjust cuts to major services such as air ambulances has left shocking funding shortfalls. In a bid to help release the weight and pressure from the EAAA, the Fenlanders H.O.G. Chapter have worked extensively to find a solution.

Through their incredible innovation, hard work and genuine commitment to community, they’ve raised £8,000. Through amazing fundraising events like their Rally in Fakenham, Poker Runs, Open Days and BBQ events, they’ve managed to bring in a huge amount of money after devoting hundreds of hours of their own time to help raise awareness.

This funding is vital and will play a crucial role in helping to make sure that the East Anglia Air Ambulance service has the support it needs. This community spirit and commitment to ensure that such a critical service is not let down has been a shining light for the Harley-Davidson groups all around Anglia.

Not only does it showcase a willingness to fight for what is right, but it makes sure that people understand the plight of even such an essential service. Through smart organization and the goodwill of locals, enough has been raised to help provide a fighting chance for the Air Ambulance service to continue their impeccable service work.

The Fenlanders H.O.G. Chapter will be presenting the EAAA with the cheque at Newmarket Harley-Davidson on 14th October at mid-day. If you would like to come along and pay your respects to the team and celebrate this wonderful act of community, be sure to come along!
