2021 Raffle: Triumph Over Adversity Recovery Appeal
The National Motorcycle Museum team also thanked everyone who has given to their first COVID-19 raffle. As promised, the funds raised are being used directly for the purpose of reopening the museum for a limited number of days once Government restrictions allow.
Whilst the funds raised so far will allow us to reopen in a limited way, as of late December 2020 we had still only raised 33% of our original £500k re-opening target. Therefore we are undertaking this further Museum Triumph Over Adversity Recovery Appeal Raffle, details of which can be seen below.
Very special thanks must go to Triumph Motorcycles for donating the brand new 2021 Triumph Trident 660 as a first prize. Along with everyone that has contributed by purchasing a raffle ticket, or given to our appeal fund in the past year, Triumph Motorcycles have been a huge support to us at this difficult time.
First Prize: Brand new 2021 Triumph Trident 660cc motorcycle, a stunning new model donated by our friends at Triumph Motorcycles.
Second Prize: 1978 Triumph Trident T160 750cc motorcycle. Low mileage, and only one previous owner.
Third Prize: 1956 Triumph Tiger T100 500cc motorcycle. Fresh from a partial restoration in the museum’s own workshop.
The prize draw for the “Triumph Over Adversity” appeal raffle will take place on Friday 25 June 2021 at The National Motorcycle Museum. Tickets cost £6.00 each & will be distributed during Feb/March 2021 via subscription copies of the specialist press.
