All customers, bikers, visitors and spectators passing the Duke of Rothesay pub between now and June are asked to call in and buy a TT badge for CancerCare.

The Heysham pub is the final ‘port of call’ for those travelling by ferry to the Isle of Man. And for the annual TT bike race, the community pub is always teeming.

CancerCare is the pub’s chosen charity of the year and the bespoke TT 2017 badges are available right now. They are designed especially for the pub, the event and for CancerCare. They cost £3 each, with all proceeds going to the charity. Regular customers have already shown their support for the scheme by purchasing them.

Duke of Rothesay supervisor Michelle Baker said, “This is a brilliant fundraising idea. Bikers are traditionally very generous when it comes to supporting cancer charities. We hope they all buy a badge as the first souvenir of this year’s race and help us raise money to support our local families.”

Jonathan Barker MD said, “We hope to raise £1000.00 by selling these badges to all customers not just bikers. CancerCare offers services free of charge to those who need it. They rely completely on donations. Please help us to reach our target by buying a badge!”

CancerCare’s Fundraiser Helen Hartin said, “It is incredible the support we are getting from the Mitchell Pubs, The Duke of Rothesay’s TT idea is very creative and I am sure will attract many Bikers before they get on the boat”.

For the spectacular motorcycle event, the community pub will extend opening hours from May 26th - June 2nd
