This summer will mark the tenth anniversary of the passing of the former British Superbike champion and 11-times winner of the Isle of Man TT Steve Hislop, who is known as Hizzy.
To celebrate Steve’s life and contribution to the world of motorsport, Steve’s former partner Kelly Bailey and their two sons Aaron and Connor were determined to arrange something special in memory of their father.
In association with Creechurch Capital, the family will be holding a charity evening on Tuesday 4th June. The evening will include a panel of TT Riders, past and present,who will take part ina half-hour Q&A session, along with an auction of motorsport memorabilia. The night will also include a raffle and music from a number of local bands.
The evening will be raisingmoney for two local charities that Steve supported during his years of motor racing, the IOM Hyperbaric Chamber and the MGP Helicopter Fund (MGP Supporters Club IOM). Both charities support the riders of the TT and MGP ensuring that their recovery and rehabilitation are of the best possible standard.
Kelly Bailey, who is organising the event on behalf of her sons Aaron and Connor said:- ”Without the help of the Hyperbaric Chamber and the MGP Helicopter Fund, many riders would not be here today. A lot of hard work and effort has gone into organising this event and with the help of our sponsor Creechurch Capital; we can make it a fitting tribute to Steve.”
