A motorcycle outlet raised more than £2,000 after one of the organisers suffered a stroke.

The fund-raiser was organised by Shorrocks Motorcycles in Preston and the money went to Lancashire Care Foundation Trust’s community neurological team.

The money will allow neurological patients to have improved equipment and facilities to support their care programme.

Barry Underwood, 57, of Preston, suffered a stroke just over a year ago. He was involved with organising the fund-raiser after receiving care from the community neurological rehabilitation team.

He said: “The team based at the Minerva really helped me after I had my stroke and I wanted to help give something back to the service as a way of thanking them for their hard work.

“It’s great how much the fundraising event raised and I hope the equipment goes a long way in helping other people like me.”

Melanie Worrall-Moore, occupational therapist at Lancashire Care, said: “We are absolutely delighted about the amount of money raised and really grateful that it has enabled us to provide some fantastic equipment.”
