Copdock Classic Motorcycle Club donate £7,500 to Foundation

The Foundation is delighted to announce that Copdock Classic Motorcycle Club has pledged it’s support by kindly donating £7,500.

Copdock Classic Motorcycle Club will be hosting the East Anglian Copdock Bike Show at Trinity Park in Ipswich on Sunday, 1 September, with the Foundation to provide support for the event including a strong on-the-day presence.

The donation will be reinvested into communities in Suffolk and the surrounding areas, supporting the ongoing growth and improvement of the Foundation’s diverse provision.

“Copdock Classic Motorcycle Club is made up of volunteers that give up their time up all year to put on the best motorcycle show possible,” said Ady Smith, Chair of Copdock Classic Motorcycle Club.

“Having been formed 33 years ago by 4 friends they put on the first show in the village of Copdock, the show outgrew the local sports field and now is considered the biggest one day motorcycle show in the country based now at Trinity Park in Ipswich.

“Once all expenses have been paid, the East Anglian Copdock Bike Show donates any profits to local good causes and charities. The 14 members of the committee see the Ipswich Town Foundation as the perfect platform to assist in the distribution of these funds and look forward to working a long side them in helping people in the local community.”

As the Foundation continues to work towards its aim to build an empowered, inspired and inclusive community to be proud of, support from local organisations is crucial in facilitating its progression.

“We’re absolutely delighted to receive this wonderful donation from Copdock Classic Motorcycle Club,” added Director of Foundation, Dan Palfrey.

“The donation will be reinvested into key projects that we have discussed with Ady and the committee, all of which will make a significant difference to the lives of our participants.”

Ipswich Town Foundation would like to place on record its sincerest thanks to Copdock Classic Motorcycle Club for their generous donation and look forward to supporting what will undoubtedly be a successful event in September.
