Biker & Bike contributor Kevin Turner gives his royalties to Blood Bikes

Biker & Bike’s newest contributor, motorcycle adventure author Kevin Turner, is donating his royalties from his Hapless Biker series to Shropshire and Staffordshire Blood Bikes (SSBB), his local group of life-saving riders.

Every copy of Bonjour! Is This Italy? and From Crystal Palace to Red Square sold between 1 November 2016 to 30 April 2017 will see vital donations made to this valuable service.

Kevin’s publisher, Veloce Publishing, will match the author’s sales royalties, essentially doubling Kevin’s donation.

Kevin’s Hapless Biker books, tell of his adventures throughout Europe, Scandinavia and into Russia, first riding a Suzuki SV650S and then on his ’02 Kawasaki Ninja.

Explaining why he’d chosen to donate to this worthwhile cause, Kevin said: “I really wanted to do a charity ride or a sponsored adventure, but I have twin boys that have just turned two and finding time for a big ride was out of the question. But I realised I could essentially recycle my past journeys in the sense of donating the sales from my books; it’s not quite as exciting as getting out on the road but at the end of the day, it’s about supporting my local Blood Bikers, not going on holiday.”

SSBB is a volunteer service, providing emergency transportation of blood products, for free, to NHS hospitals across Shropshire, Staffordshire and South Cheshire.
