Essex Air Ambulance Run

Members for Blue Knights England VII attended the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance run today from Dunton to Harwich providing support to our colleagues from the Essex Police Motorcycle Unit and Casualty Reduction Section to provide a safe riding environment for those taking part.
England VII travelled to Dunton in Essex where Ford had generously allowed the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance to host the start of their wonderful ride to Harwich in Essex. The weather was cloudy, but not a drop of rain in sight. 
England VII conversed with other motorcyclists at Dunton and our colleagues that we would be supporting during this great run. The mood was good and joyous.
After the initial greetings, and hello’s the Blue Knights headed for a coffee and bacon bap. I can’t tell you how important this is, especially when you have to get up early on a day you shouldn’t really have to be getting up so early.
A lot of motorcycles were already present, arriving nice and early to get off within the first group of many.
As the briefing was being undertaken with the Motorcycle Unit and the organisers, the rest of us remained and conversed. 
On the return from briefing, there were to be three riding groups, with Blue Knights providing support to each of those groups.
As the groups their made their way towards Harwich, Essex Police Officers held junctions to assist with the safety of the motorcyclists participating in the event. One thing I noted through my participating was the difficult job the Motorcycle Unit have, to try and ensure the safety of the riding group especially when it came to covering the on slips on major strategic roads, trying to gain compliance from motorists that were otherwise within their own world. 
As the groups continued towards Harwich, motorcycles joined from all parts of the route to increase the size of the convoy. Overhead, at what appeared to be every bridge, were members of the public showing their support to such a great cause.
All motorcycles arrived in Harwich, mostly without incident, and with good direction from stewards for parking.
Harwich was alive today with live music, coffee and motorcycle marques. We made our way around the town, enjoying the atmosphere.
I would like to thank Essex Police Motorcycle Unit/Casualty Reduction Unit for the wonderful work they do each day to make the road a safe place and The Essex & Herts Air Ambulance for the work they do all year round and Ford for allowing us to use their facilities for such a good cause.

Charity Club Night

Morning All,


So the 13th September saw one of our monthly Club meeting where we all got together have a good catch up with each other, discuss some club business and generally have a good time. However this month had the added bonus that we were able to present a cheque to a great cause.

The Sam Andrews Trust was setup in 2010 due to the overwhelming support by friends and family to raise money so that we may provide the very best developmental and specialist physiotherapy treatment for Sam.

Sam Andrews was born in July 2008 a happy and content baby to parents Martin & Jo. 
After seven weeks Sam was first spotted with a condition known as Infantile Spasms, a very painful experience whereby all the muscles in the body contract at the same time. Following tests at Great Ormond Street Hospital Sam was diagnosed with Hemimegalencephaly (HME), an extremely rare condition in which one-half of the brain, or one side of the brain, is abnormally larger than the other. Because of this imbalance, the enlarged brain tissue can cause frequent seizures which are difficult to control. 
When doctors first identified Sam’s condition the diagnosis was not good. Doctors expected Sam to be blind, unable to walk or talk, to be in constant pain if the seizures were not able to be controlled and to be severely developmentally delayed.

Sam is now a very happy little young boy who is developing well.


Following the presentation Sam's father Martin contacted us to update the group....

“Thanks again for the cheque the other night Tracey, it was great catching up with you and the rest of the group.

Jo and I have decided to put the money towards some sensory equipment for Sam as he needs a place where he can switch off and relax if things get too stressful for him. Will keep you posted when we find the right thing for him.

If you could pass on our thanks to everyone, we are totally made up with your generosity and support.

Thanks again”
