TT photo exhibition to boost racing charity
Thursday, March 11, 2010
Photographers who contribute to the Official Isle of Man TT website and roadracingsupporters.com have been invited to exhibit their work during the 2010 TT.
The Reverend John Coldwell has asked photographers from both websites to take part in Roads Closed, a two week exhibition at St Ninian’s Church, Douglas, from May 30.
More than 100 magnificent photographs and canvasses featuring images of real road racing will be on display for the enjoyment of the public who visit the church during the 2010 TT. It’ll be a chance to not only view the exhibition, but also to meet friends new and old while enjoying traditional Manx made refreshments, courtesy of the parishioners of St Ninian’s.
Anyone visiting the exhibition will be asked to make a 50p donation to the roadracingsupporters charity fund. Roadracingsupporters.com has raised £2,000 already this year thanks to the 2010 Road Racing Calendar. Money raised at the exhibition will be added to the donations already made to the Manx Grand Prix Supporters Club Helicopter Fund and Rob Vine Fund.
This year, roadracingsupporters.com also hopes to contribute to the Southern 100 Club’s own rescue helicopter from the money raised by the exhibition.
Courtesy of the photographers, images in the exhibition will be available to purchase, with the proceeds being added to the funds raised.
A spokesman for roadracingsupporters.com said plans are well advanced for the exhibition, but some help is still needed.
‘Whilst we have received some valuable support so far towards making this exhibition a very special event, we still need some help.’
‘To show these images to their best we are on the lookout to borrow some conference/show-type free standing display boards for the full duration of the event. If anyone can offer us any help please contact the event co-ordinator Andy Findlay via e mail [email protected] or Rev. John Coldwell via [email protected]’
‘All are welcome to the exhibition and we look forward to seeing you all at St Ninian’s.’
