Wednesdayite helps out Sheffield Speedway Hero's Big day - Raising £384

on March 21, 2015

Wednesdayite will be helping out this Sunday by providing car park facilities to Speedway fans.

 

Our chairman , Paul Holmes, was contacted by Andy Deakin of Sheffield Wednesday on Thursday afternoon to see if we could assist our local sporting neighbours, Sheffield Speedway, with the use of the Wednesdayite Car park on this Sunday (22nd March 2015).

On finding out that the event was a benefit event for ex-rider , Ricky Ashworth, who suffered life changing injuries and brain damage in a speedway crash in August 2013, Paul agreed with Ian Hunter , of Sheffield Window Centre and Sheffield Speedway that we would charge £3 for each car with the full proceeds going to Ricky's fund. 

It would be great if this offer was matched by the owner of the Owlerton stadium car park as well, giving the days car park takings and boosting the funds .

UPdtae this raised £384 towards Ricky's funds and many who parked there were grateful to be able to contribute in this way,
