This year’s SSDT charities had a great help raising money thanks to Oset bikes and Trials UK. A one off special edition “Scottish” electric bike was offered as an incentive for people to donate to two very worthwhile causes. The “Forces Children’s Trust” and “Bike Tours for the Wounded” both of whom support families whom have suffered life changing injuries due to conflict.

The special SSDT Oset had pride of place at the head of the Sunday parade of 275 bikes through the High St of Fort William, ridden by Trials UK’s team rider George Hemingway alongside the Bike Tours for the Wounded’s “Respect” bike.
After the parade a draw was held to pick the winner and Rhoda Rathmell, wife of Malcolm Rathmell, kindly picked out the lucky winner who was Karen Shaw. Karen works hard at the charity organisation “Army of Angels” also raising money to assist many charities.
Well done Karen and we look forward to presenting you with your fantastic prize. Their great work can be helped here at http://www.armyofangels.org.uk/
Donations are still welcomed either online at Virgin Money Giving here – http://bit.ly/10HyINo or by cash at the Trials UK shop. Thank you to all who have helped us raise a substantial amount to help families all around the country.
