Our friends at the National Motorcycle Museum team would like to thank everyone who has given to both of the museum’s Covid-19 appeal raffles over the last year. As promised, following the recent announcement of the Government’s ‘roadmap’ out of restrictions, the funds raised are being used directly for the purpose of re-opening the museum to visitors.
At the present time, and if the ‘roadmap’ goes to plan, the museum intends to re-open to visitors on Monday May 17, 2021 with – restrictions permitting – the museum collection, shop and restaurant. Visit www.thenmm.co.uk for further updates including opening hours.
Whilst the funds raised so far will allow the NMM to re-open in a limited way on May 17, at the time of writing the museum has still only raised just over half of its original £500k re-opening target. As from Monday 21st June, the hope is to return to the normal seven-day-a-week opening hours.
This, then is a good time to remind everyone about the ‘Museum Triumph over Adversity Recovery Appeal Raffle’ which will help the museum achieve that aim. Details of the appeal can be seen below, and special thanks from the NMM go to Triumph Motorcycles for donating the brand new 2021 Triumph Trident 660 as a first prize (Main image).
Second prize is a low mileage and only one owner 1978 Triumph Trident T160 750cc motorcycle.
Third prize: 1956 Triumph Tiger T100 500cc motorcycle, fresh from restoration in the museum’s workshop.
The prize draw for the ‘Triumph Over Adversity’ appeal raffle will take place on Friday June 25 at The National Motorcycle Museum. Tickets cost £6 each and can be purchased online by visiting www.thenmm.co.uk
