THE NEC BIKE SHOW
Simon was a regular competitor in the British Superbike Championship and took part in four World Superbikes races including 24hr Endurance Races in Macau China and France.
The Simon Andrews Fund was set up in 2014 following Simon’s devastating and fatal accident in May of that year at the North West 200 and was born from an idea Simon had whilst he was alive. Simon fully appreciated how fortunate he was with the help of physiotherapy, cognitive therapy and some of the best aids available to help the riders achieve a faster recovery.
However, a lot of racers struggle financially when they have an accident and it has a direct impact on their immediate family and this is where the Simon Andrews Fund for injured riders comes in.
There have been Funds established in Isle of Man since 2001 and a Fund established in Northern Ireland since 2003 and we now have the Simon Andrews Fund for Injured Riders in England started by his family, in his name, for injured riders to part fund physiotherapy treatment and access much needed medical services.
Thanks to your support the Fund has paid out almost £25,000 since its inception. We have helped numerous riders with much needed bone repairing treatment and full use of any hyperbaric chamber around the country, plus private physio treatment. After the TT this year we also made a donation to the Marshalls Association in recognition of their amazing work throughout the racing season.
We would also like to say a huge thank you to everyone who continues to support us purchasing the first class calendars each Christmas and everyone who do collection buckets throughout the year. Without all your help the Fund would not be able to raise the money we have. A special thank you to all the riders who over the last year have donated many items to the Fund and the wonderful Mark Walls family whose support and practical help has been invaluable over the last 3 years, including organising the Isle on Man TT Legacy Lap to remember fallen riders.
Love from Simon’s family xx
