ARAI TO HOST CHARITY AUCTION AT NEC
November 18 2009.


Phoenix will hold a charity auction at the NEC Motorcycle and Scooter show on Saturday December 5, 2009.

Starting at 12.00pm on the main stage in the Arai Entertainment Zone (Hall 2), the auction will consist of ten quality items that will go under the hammer to raise money for Riders for Health.
Items currently confirmed include an RX-7 GP Colin Edwards replica helmet, signed by the Yamaha MotoGP rider, and many pieces of racing memorabilia and money-can't-buy objects, including the stunning one-off helmet worn in this year's Superbike and Senior TT races by Gary Johnson.

Painted by leading helmet painters, Rich-Art Concepts, the unique RX-7 GP was designed to celebrate two special Arai landmarks in 2009; 25 years of fiercely supporting the Isle of Man TT and 25 years of Arai being officially imported into the UK.

These two anniversaries are represented on the range-topping helmet with the bold red of the Isle of Man Triskelion flag painted on one side and on the other, the red, white and blue of the Union Flag.

Riders for Health strives to make sure all health workers in Africa have access to reliable transportation so they can reach the most isolated and vulnerable people with regular and predictable health care.

As a firm supporter of the award-winning social enterprise, Phoenix and Arai has helped raise over £15,000 for the charity since 2006.

As well as the first chance to see the 2010 range in the UK (stand 2F35, Hall 2), Arai is offering its customers free helmet servicing at the show (stand 2G50 Hall 2).

A full list of the items being auctioned will be available to view shortly on www.whyarai.co.uk
