Ive been asked to pass on big big thank you`s for all the kind words and praise regarding martin, Aka Pimlico Pilot. I, like Rob have been involved in communications with the family and they really are so amazed to see so many people expressing lovely memories.
I’m sure at some point in the near future we will organise a memorial ride out as we would, and i for one would suggest that we collect for Martins Favorite charity the NSPCC. He was a strong supporter of this and it would be brilliant if we could help towards a charity he felt so strongly for.
At this time the family are still grieving and im sure they are also remembering such a wonderful person.
Thanks westie, when you next speak to them can you find out when the funeral is [ i understand we wont be there] but it is to send flowers, and we will do something ourselves on that day, also if you could find out the road and junction it happened at.
Its a private affair im afraid, as to the familys wishes. Thats why we will be doing a rideout in memory at some stage. Any donations to the NSPCC would be a welcome addition, i will find out the details on donating.
I’d be well up for donating some money. I think you lot have really done yourselves something to be proud of. There’s a great sense of community on this forum, pretty much everyone I’ve met has seemed really safe.
Pimlco pilot was a really decent chap, I only spoke to him online, but I recognised his pic’s and I’ve seen in out and about in the past.
If a memorial ride happens please let me know and I’ll come and document the whole thing for Martin’s family and also for the NSPCC if efforts are made to raise some funds. My wife is one of the corporate sponsorship managers for the NSPCC and I’m sure they would really appreciate the publicity and if it helps a cause Martin supported then so much the better.
Let me know what happens and if I can do something respectful that will help I’ll do what I can.
