Donation to air fence at Levels Raceway in Timaru - 2014

posted Aug 22, 2014, 3:22 AM by Nigel Tomkins

Here's some shots of a couple of sections of air fence at Levels Raceway in Timaru. This has been made possible by a significant donation from Pub Charity for the purchase of 64 metres of the air fence.

Contributions from The Otago Motorcycle ClubSouth Canterbury Motorcycle Club and Canterbury Motorcycle Club paid for the freight costs from Auckland to Christchurch. John Hepburn was generous enough to transport it from Christchurch to Timaru at no cost. 

I'm sure the other motorcycle clubs involved were as enthusiastic as the OMCC to support this venture. We had unanimous support for this. As always the club was keen to help in any area that will improve safety for motorcyclists. Accumulated profits from 34 years of running the Brass Monkey Rally enabled us to help with yet another community project. Thanks to all involved in the Brass Monkey, and all those people who've attended over the years. 

We look forward to seeing a great turn out for our club day on November 1st. 

Please forgive me if I've left anybody off this list, and I'm sure there are lots of other people who helped make this happen. 
Feel free to chime in with any info in this regard. 

Cheers, Craig B. President. OMCC

Otago Community Hospice Donation 2014

Quote Otago Community Hospice ; "We've had Brendan McMahon, one of the organisers of the Brass Monkey, at the hospice this morning with a donation of $4,000! We have to fundraise $2 million this financial year and support like this from our community really makes all the difference. Thanks to the Brass Monkey for choosing to support us!"

Neurological Foundation - 2013

posted Aug 22, 2014, 3:18 AM by Nigel Tomkins

"The Brass Monkey Rally is an event organised and run by the Otago Motorcycle Club for the past 34 years. It attracts people not only from all parts of New Zealand, but also from overseas, so it is important to us that monies obtained from the running of our Rally are put to good use. We try to have a worthy recipient to make a donation to every year and at the last Rally we decided it would go to the Neurological Foundation. We picked the Foundation because the research projects funded by the Neurological Foundation are of benefit to all, including motorcyclists," says John Willems of the Organising Committee.

It was appropriate that John and Committee Chairman, Brendan McMahon, handed over the Club's very generous donation of $4,000 at the Neurological Foundation's Brain Day event in Dunedin. John (centre) and Brendan (left) are pictured with Neurological Foundation's Dunedin Community Liaison Co-ordinator, Bridget Hall (right), in front of an inflatable brain at the Brain Day event.
