We will be holding our collection for the very worthy fund this evening.

The Speedway Riders Benevolent Fund is registered charity, which exists solely for the purpose of assisting Speedway riders who have became seriously injured, been forced into long-term sickness from their work, or whose lives have been devastated as a result of accidents whilst racing Speedway for British-based teams.
It helps in many different ways, including the purchasing of items such as wheelchairs and other facilities to assist with disabilities of the beneficiaries, as well as providing assistance in areas such as alterations to living accommodation.
As a registered charity, the Speedway Riders Benevolent Fund is administered and controlled by a board of four trustees who, as well as being responsible for the day-to-day operation, also ensure full transparency of accounts by submitting annual audits to the Charities Commissioners.
The main income of the Fund is raised by kind and generous donations from loyal speedway supporters across the world. Collections in aid of the Fund are held at every speedway track throughout the season, complimented by other donations and individual fundraising events.
