Suzuki’s Barry Sheene themed, retro styled clothing range has raised nearly £5,500 for the CLIC Sargent children’s charity, in just three months of sales.

With 10% of every sale going to the children’s cancer charity, Suzuki GB’s Wayne Dye handed over a cheque to CLIC Sargent’s Philippa Hardman at this year’s Motorcycle Live. The cheque was for £5,442.99, the amount raised from August to October.

Wayne Dye, Suzuki GB’s General Manager for Parts and Accessories, said, “It’s great to be able to give nearly £5,500 to such a great charity like CLIC Sargent, especially after just three months of sales.

“CLIC Sargent was Barry Sheene’s chosen charity, and the guys there do such a fantastic job of providing clinical, practical, financial and emotional support for children and young people with cancer, as well as their families.

“It was a real privilege to be able to handover the cheque to Philippa, and we hope it won’t be long before we’re handing over even more.”

The Barry Sheene clothing line honours arguably the most famous motorcycle racer ever and the last British champion in the premier class of motorcycle racing. Sheene won the 500cc World Championship with Suzuki in 1976 and 1977.

Embracing the golden age of racing with the Texaco Heron Suzuki colours, the line-up consists of a t-shirt and a hoodie, each featuring Sheene’s racing number ‘7’, team logos and sponsors.
