Support Hope for Huck and place your auction bid now

The brand-new Kawasaki KX85 donated to the “Hope for Huck” campaign will be auctioned on 18 April at the annual Mike Brown memorial motocross event at the Marshfield track near Chippenham, Wilts. Live bidding starts at 5pm, text bids can be placed now. Proceeds will go to the Royal University Hospital (Bath) Forever Friends appeal.

Donated by Kawasaki Motors UK to add to the fund-raising activities in support of former Kawasaki off-road racer Mark Hucklebridge, the bike will be a major attraction at the auction.
 
Alan Brown of Kawasaki Team Green dealership MotoXtreme, who is part of the organising committee, is predicting huge interest in the auction and a great day’s racing.
 
“The Good Friday Mike Brown Memorial event is well established and always very popular. We already support the Royal United Hospital Forever Friends appeal so the auction for the brand-new KX85 is another great reason for visitors either to come along on the day or make a text bid if you can’t make it for any reason.
 
“It’s the 25th anniversary event this year and a great way to remember Mike, plus the perfect platform to highlight support for Mark from all those who wish him well in his fight against cancer.”
 
KMUK general manager Howard Dale, added his support saying: “Mark Hucklebridge is always mentioned in the same breath as the name Kawasaki. We are delighted to support this charity auction with the donation of a KX85 and hope that the funds raised add to the good work done by the chosen charity, Forever Friends.”
