THE TRIUMPH OVER ADVERSITY RECOVERY APPEAL RAFFLE 2021
The National Motorcycle Museum team would like to thank everyone who gave to its 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 the museum to reopen in a limited way, as of late December 2020 it had still only raised 33 per cent of its original £500k re-opening target. Therefore it is undertaking a further ‘Museum Triumph Over Adversity Recovery Appeal Raffle’, details of which can be seen below.
According to the NMM: “Very special thanks must go to our friends at 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.”
Triumph’s Chief Commercial Officer Paul Stroud said: “We look forward to welcoming the winner at a Triumph dealership of their choice in the UK to collect their prize, and encourage the many fans of the National Motorcycle Museum and British motorcycling to show their support in buying a ticket and contributing to the survival of this incredible UK venue.’’
- 1st Prize: Brand new 2021 Triumph Trident 660cc motorcycle.
- 2nd Prize: 1978 Triumph Trident T160 750cc motorcycle. Low mileage, and only one previous owner.
- 3rd Prize: 1956 Triumph Tiger T100 500cc motorcycle. Fresh from a partial restoration in the museum’s own workshop.
