As you will notice, the accounts are laid out very differently this year. This is because the Isle of Man Charities Commission has now adopted only 2 recognised formats and the version our accountants are now using is the simplified one which, I am hoping, will be easier to understand.
We have made a loss this year, as I predicted at our last AGM (held via Zoom) as we still have a number of riders with ongoing injuries. Obviously, we have not been able to undertake our regular fund-raising events in the last year due to the lockdowns, but can I thank all of our many members who have raised funds or given money to help us continue to assist people in need. If anyone has any questions about the accounts please do not hesitate to contact me either by email ([email protected]) or via phone on 01623 882231 or via text on 07732 416399.
The values and aims of the TTRA haven't changed in the many years that it has been in existence. Riders, and their families, who face real hardship, are helped as much as is possible and for as long as is necessary. By its very nature, confidentiality is everything, this work goes largely unnoticed. But the sting in the tail for the TTRA is that by having to hide its light under a bushel the association finds it that much more difficult to cast the fundraising net farther afield. It also comes as a surprise to find that an organisation founded out of necessity in the 1950's should still be needed in 21st Century, but needed it most definitely still is.
We can assist with Riders who may have been injured in the sport we all love and enjoy, or for some unfortunate reason financial assistance may be asked for. These circumstances are dealt with confidentially and with discretion. We always appreciate a call from a good friend or relative who can guide us through the TTRA members situation.
The Friends of the TTRA
The Friends of the TTRA is a great way for
those who enjoy the TT, but have never ridden in a race to help support the TTRA. Please go to the FoTTRA pages for more information.
Friends are maybe those who made the race possible for a rider such as a sponsor, a mechanic, a marshal, official, a member of the riders family or even a TT enthusiast. The list includes manufacturers, ordinary motorcyclists and business people who have an interest in motorcycle sport or the objects of the charity.
