Newly opened Shed 30 café in Kirbymoorside raise over £400 for YAA heroes

Shed 30, a newly opened café in Kirbymoorside has raised £405.25 from a motorcycle meet for rapid response charity, the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

The café, situated on the Kirkby Mills Industrial Estate, opened in June 2020 and the Classic 2 Stroke Motorcycle meet took place on Sunday 30th August 2020 with nearly 600 motorbikes in attendance throughout the day. Prizes were given to the ‘Best Standard Machine’, ‘Best Custom Machine’ and ‘Best in Show’ and representatives from the Yorkshire Air Ambulance attended with a stall.

Event organiser and Shed 30 café owner, Jamie Wentworth, said: “I was quite surprised by how many people attended our first event, it was a fantastic day. We would like to thank everyone who supported us and who entered their machines in the show. I would also like to say a big thanks to Daisy Garden centre for attending and kindly donating £100 to the YAA.”

Speaking of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, he continued: “It’s such a good cause and we all need it, especially us bikers.”

Kevin Hutchinson, East Yorkshire Regional Fundraiser for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, said: “We would like to thank Shed 30 for their support and generosity and for raising an incredible £405.25 from their latest meet.

It was a fantastic event and the money raised will help greatly towards the vital funding of our service. We look forward to working with them in the future and wish them all the best with their new café.”
