Bikers to hit TT’s track for Sick Kids cash

Have your say

THRILL seekers are hitting the track of a world famous motorcycle race to raise cash for sick ­children in the Capital.

A team of 22 bikers have set off for the Isle of Man, where they will then spend two days on the 100-year-old official TT circuit.

The riders will build up as many laps as possible with the aim of raising at least £100 each for the Sick Kids Friends Foundation.

Dorothy MacMillan, a charge nurse at the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit at the Sick Kids Hospital, is one of the participants set to tackle the legendary 37.7-mile course.

She said: “We wanted to give something back to thank them for all their hard work. Work on the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit is very rewarding, especially when you see the impact that the Foundation’s support has on the lives of patients and their parents.”

The 51-year-old, who has been a motorcyclist for six years, added: “I am really excited to take part in this trip with all the other riders. I can’t wait to get on the road and ­follow in the tyre tracks of some of the most famous motorcyclists in history.”
