In tribute to Simon and his life, Feridax produced the SHOEI commemorative beanie available for sale both online and in store to help keep SHOEI Rider Simon’s memory alive, to give his fans a chance to show their respect and to raise funds for Simon’s and his family’s chosen charities.
And raise funds they did… at the time of closing the sales of the beanies – the biking community had kindly helped to raise more than £7,800 which is being divided between two of Simon’s favourite charities – Air Ambulance and the Isle Of Man Hyperbaric Medical Facility with BSB rider James Ellison being one of the first to benefit from the donation after his recent crash in British Super Bikes at Thruxton.
Simon’s father Stuart said “We have been truly overwhelmed at the amount raised along with all the kind words and sentiments from the whole of the biking community for Simon. We are now proudly moving forward with the Simon Andrews foundation and will be working very closely with Feridax and Shoei to continue to raise money with some exciting and fun projects in the future. Look out for the ‘Live Unstoppable’ topless calendar towards the end of the year!”
