 Phil Hogg Fund Raising Night - Thank You

I would on behalf of my family and all involved in Hogg Rescue like to thank everyone who once again donated to the Phil Hogg Rescue Auction in February.

This years total of £8,686 far exceeds last years amount and helps greatly to ensure the continued running of the Phil Hogg Rescue Units & also the Rob Vine Fund. This is even more welcomed as the loss of this years TT races takes a big chunk out of the normal monies collected during TT fortnight.

I would especially like to thank our long term donors who have continued to support us annually & also welcome the many new donors who have helped us this year. Also thanks are extended to the many people & companies on the mainland who donate willingly without any real knowledge of what the Phil Hogg Rescue Unit is all about.

I will try to name all donors but as normal there are bound to be one or two missed. I therefore apologise to anyone whose name is not here and would appreciate it if they would let me know so I can grovel apologetically to them. Here goes:-

Dave Sykes Photography, Morris Kelly, Steve Hislop who gave us a phenomenal amount of trophies etc, Dave Leach, The Isle of Man Steam Packet Co, Keith Martin Photography, B.K.S. leathers, Rod Organ, Gareth Gruff Jones, Mark Flint, Alan Lund who once again helped with various contacts accross, MACC Motorcycle Accessory & Clothing Company Ltd of Macclesfield for the top class leather jackets brought over for us, Phoenix Distribution Ltd, John and Dave Anderson BPD Photech Warrington, Paul Korkus Photography, Richard Milky Quayle, Ron Clarke of Manx Motorsport Photography in Peel, Bill Snelling, Shawn Loader, Dave Noble Framing,Martin at Photofinish for the usual sackful of frames, the Picture Box, The Hilton Hotel, The Quality Hotel, Eurohelmets Ltd, Bettacrete, Bernie Lund, Rob and Ali Graham, Gold & Goose for the usual fantastic GP shots, Greenlight TV, Bob Ollerenshaw, Glen English whose statue of Joey was one of the nights star attractions, John Whitlow, Jason Griffiths, Shaun Bostrum,M aurice Wilson, Mark Kermode, Mick Woollett photography, Ogri Ltd, Jack and Steve at V&M, Roy Shirlaw for the usual sack full of goodies delivered ably by the boys from Aberdeen, Dienza Ducati smart fleeces these ones, Carl Fogarty & Neil Bramwell for Carls personaly autograped paddock jacket from 2000 another big earner, Haynes Publishing, Frank Thomas for the fantastic box full of goodies sent over, West Coast (Shady), Ian Bell Motorcycles, Island Photographics, Nichola Main for her brilliant prints of Joey and Robert Dunlop the Joey one was the star of the evening and raised the most for an item £350 to be exact, Colin Moore, Yamaha Uk Ltd, George Oates, Brian Appleton, Dougy Christian, Rose at the Sulby Glen, Barbara Wood, John Watterson, Kevin Ago Murphy,M claren F1 team, Whittaker trading, Zenith Industrial, Clucas Laundry, Lil Smith, Nick and Tracy Busby, Jenny Noon, Carol Purves, Andreas Racing Association, Ian Corkill, Tommy Healy, Andy Wall at Lazer Helmets, Dave Pinder at Lintek Gleave.
