Not all our beneficial activities take place actually on the race track.
Although clearly a large part of our activities are going to be focused on or around the race track, we also conduct a number of activities to support our beneficiaries away from the race track. These activities take a variety of forms, large or small, but all providing benefits to those involved.
Race Motorcycle Builds
To be able to compete we clearly need race specification motorcycles and rather than purchase motorcycles already built we use road going motorcycles and convert them to the required specification in-house. Whether these be our high end British Superbike Championship race motorcycles, or those for learning to race on and competing at a Grassroots level, this provides opportunities for our beneficiaries to get hands-on in a much less pressurised environment. They can learn many motorcycle engineering skills and gain deeper knowledge, as well as be afforded the opportunity to gain the satisfaction in seeing their end product circulating on the race track.
Race Motorcycle Maintenance
Maintaining our race motorcycles to the highest standards between race events is a critical activity. This provides another opportunity for us to provide technical mentorship for our beneficiaries to learn basic motorcycle maintenance skills in a low pressure environment.
Social Contact Network
Being a member of the organisation also provides the beneficiaries with a new social contact network where group and private conversations can take place. Thus providing beneficiaries with the ability to communicate with like-minded people with who they have a shared interest and enable them to discuss any issues or problems they may have.
Signposting & Linking
We don't profess to be experts in addressing the physical and mental health problems our beneficiaries may be suffering with, but we know how to identify many of the initial signs. With a detailed contact network to expert organisations who can help, we are able to signpost our beneficiaries when the need arises to access more specialist assistance.
By attending and exhibiting at events away from the racing we are able to raise awareness of the beneficial activities we undertake and are available to Wounded, Injured and Sick UK Service personnel & Veterans in need; inspire others by hearing about the achievements of our beneficiaries; as well as raise awareness of the problems some of the military and Veteran community may suffer with.
One of the by-products of involvement with True Heroes Racing has been our beneficiaries being inspired and enthused to undertake life embetterment activities, such as improving their physical health and fitness or enrolling on college courses to increase their knowledge and qualifications.
