We’ve raised over £500,000.00 since starting Bikers Make a Difference

Every biker who comes through the BMAD entrance makes a donation which allows BMAD to make a difference to so many lives across the TQ postcode area. The Wednesday evenings are also a huge tourist attraction for non-bikers who have free access to the promenade. There are collecting cans at the BMAD trailer and the BMAD team will gratefully accept donations from the general public.

The objectives of BMAD (Bikers Make a Difference) are to raise money for public benefit in providing funding to sick, disabled and disadvantaged young people up to the age of 19 in the TQ area; and other charities that also provide services to the local TQ communities which directly or indirectly benefit young people.

Examples of charities we have supported because of the services they provide locally are: Devon Freewheelers (Blood Bikes), St. John Ambulance, Torbay Young Carers and Devon Air Ambulance.

PLEASE NOTE ~ we are only able to consider applications that will improve the quality of life for sick, disabled and disadvantaged children and young people up to the age of 19 within the TQ  postcode area.

BMAD (Bikers Make a Difference) do not fund the following requests:

  • Purchasing of iPads for schools, or where schools should be supporting their pupils.
  • Home improvements, i.e. building works.
  • Crowd funding donations, and any similar requests.
  • Requests outside of the TQ area.
  • Monies to set up a charity or business.
  • Wages for employees.

Applications can be requested via email using the Contact Form below, at the end of this page.

We receive many letters and emails asking for assistance and are very glad that through you we have been able to assist with those requests. In addition we have had a lot very kind messages of support for all we do. Long may it continue and once again thank you, whether biker or holiday-maker, if you were one of the many thousands of people who supported us last year.
