Battistinis, Shaun Wright-Phillips Charity Ride . . . .

Battistinis, Shaun Wright-Phillips Charity Ride . . . .

England and Manchester City footballer Shaun Wright-Phillips leads the Way in Charity Harley Davidson Ride in aid of Education for the Children Foundation and Battistinis are pleased to be supplying ground breaking customs for the ride! The sponsored motorcycle ride is on Sunday August 9th to raise funds for children’s charity Education for the Children Foundation.

The ride starts at the Warrs Harley-Davidson dealership, 611 Kings Road, London SW6 2EL at 9am with a stop off at the famous Ace Cafe, Ace Corner, North Circular Rd, London, NW10 7UD at around 11.30am before turning back to the Sanctum Soho Hotel, London, 20 Warwick Street, London W1B 5NF, where all participants will be invited to watch the Charity Shield football match on television. So catch up with us at Warrs, The Ace Café or anywhere in -between for the ride and good times!

There are several premiership footballers expected on the ride, including Wayne Bridge (Manchester City), Micah Richards (Manchester City), Nigel Reo-Coker (Aston Villa), Steve Sidwell (Aston Villa), Nicholas Bendtner (Arsenal), as well as TV celebrities Nick Knowles and Matt Willis.

Last year, the ride raised over £20,000 for Education for the Children, and placed the media spotlight on this most worthwhile charity which builds schools and safe-houses for neglected children in Central America.

Shaun said: “The Education for the Children charity is an amazing cause. I was lucky enough to visit the village of San Felipe in Guatemala last year to catch up with the children and see how things are getting on with the schools and safe houses. All of these projects and more have benefited from our fund raising efforts.

“As ambassador for the charity it’s my duty to raise as much money as possible so the good work can continue. The kids there have very little, and few of the opportunities that I took for granted growing up in the UK, and I’m really committed to trying to help the children to get an education and the chance for a better life. Please go to my website and read about the plight of the children there and I hope you can donate some money to the cause.”
