Blantyre Bikers Klub (BBK) has embarked on an initiative to raise funds for under-privileged children through charity rides.
BBK president Gus Banda said the rides began on Saturday when they participated in a TNM Super League trophy parade at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre with the proceeds going to a yet-to-be-disclosed orphanage in the commercial city before Christmas.
“As responsible and meaningful contributors to the society, we are determined to make a great impact on many lives financially and materially through the initiative,” he said.
Banda said, as part of their activities, they have included sponsored rides so that proceeds should be going towards meaningful areas of the society.
“This is why BBK is constantly looking for opportunities to partner with organisations, who wish to utilise our bikes and rides for corporate events. All proceeds will be channelled towards charity,” he said.
BBK vice-president Ezaam Hamdani, who will be the body’s next president, said the club was established last year in 2019 by Gomez Banda, James Magombo and Gus Banda and have grown to about 50 riders.
He said there is no discrimination at the club as riders from various background race and professionals are allowed to join.
