As you saw last month, while the National Motorcycle Museum, just outside Birmingham, is still closed to visitors, it’s raising much-needed funds through yet another of its wonderful raffles.
As per usual, somehow the wonderful people at the museum have managed to source a brand new /old stock classic bike for the raffle’s first prize, with a SiIver Jubilee model Triumph T140J up for grabs!
The bike has never been run, or even registered, and the odometer shows just four miles from having been pushed around.
The second prize is an expansive, retro-styled Sealey tool chest, itself worth in the region of £850, while third prize is a luxury hotel break and dinner for two at the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse in the Manor Hotel, Meriden, including one night’s stay and, given it’s locality so close to the museum, you’ll get a VIP museum tour as well.
At the moment, that’s the only way you’ll get to look around the museum.
While the museum’s fabulous Museum Live! event can’t be held this year, the raffle will be drawn as planned, on the original date for Museum Live, Saturday, October 31.
Additionally, with no visitors to the museum, there’s also the ‘Covid-19 raffle’, with the first prize being another brand new / old stock bike, in this case a 1977 Norton Commando 850.
The Covid raffle will be running a little longer than the summer raffle, with that due to be drawn on December 21.
The summer raffle tickets are just £2 each, while the Covid raffle tickets are £6 each. Both can be bought by visiting www.nationalmotorcyclemuseum.co.uk/bike-raffle/
While the museum remains closed due to coronavirus restrictions, every raffle ticket purchased at this difficult time makes a huge difference, and The National Motorcycle Museum wants to thank everyone for their support so far.
