You've Been Nabbed's Been Nobbled!
What a treat for you all for next Friday 8th May.
Our Patron, Stevie Simpson has organised an on-line live concert featuring 5 very talented people who are donating their time to entertain you.
As the NABD rally has obviously been cancelled this year, these kind hearted folks thought it would be great to have a little reminder of what could, and will, be.
To view the live streams click the link below:
The line- up will be;
5pm - Stevie Simpson
6pm - Steph Hoy
7pm - Billy Mac
8pm - Denis Dowling
9pm - Chris Harwood
They will each be doing a 45 min set.

Donate via GoFundMe
All donations gratefully received.
The NABD would like to thank everyone involved in giving their time and talent in support.
— with Steph Hoy, Chris Harwood, Stevie Simpson, Denis Dowling and Billy Mac.
Thank you to all that have donated so far. It is really appreciated by all at the NABD.
The response has been very humbling, not just to this GoFundMe page, but to the other ways to donate on our website.
Obviously at the moment we are in the same situation as everyone else, as most of our volunteers are in the vulnerable group of people we are all self-isolating and the office ladies are doing what they can from home.
We are doing our best to consolidate our losses (from the cancellation of our event - and other events) and hope that we can pull through to when sanity returns.
I, and all at the NABD, hope you are all staying safe, and as well as we can expect, through these strange times.

Information Regarding Memberships - Email received
As you know we are in the midst of troubling times. While we all do what we can to carry on & do the best for our families and friends it's really heartening to see Memberships and Donations still coming in. We now have several ways that you can become a Member of the NABD, with one-off annual payments & monthly payment plans via PayPal. We now also have a Direct Debit mandate system in place and to try and reduce overheads, we are now sending membership renewals via email whenever possible.
If you receive an email with the heading “Membership Renewal Notice from National Association for Bikers with a Disability” from quickbooks@notification dot intuit dot com, check the membership number quoted on the email to ensure it is correct. You should also receive another email inviting you to set up a Direct Debit if you wish to pay in this manner. This system is new & we have had enquiries as to whether this email is genuine. We can assure you that it is.
We are continually grateful for all of our stalwart members & all of their fundraising efforts over the years. We trust you will all stay safe & well, heed the Health Advice & see you at the end of all of this, in a field somewhere for a pint & some belting tunes!

Driven to Despair
National Association for Bikers with a Disability (NABD) is a registered charity that has grown to become the world’s leading support group for motorcyclists who suffer disabilities due to accident, illness, genetic conditions or any other cause.
The NABD offer advice for people with disabilities on matters relating to vehicle modifications, control adaptations, licensing, training, insurance, specialist prosthetics, the registering of custom-built vehicles, exemptions from vehicle excise duty and VAT, vehicle legislation and legal representation.
We offer financial grants (England, Scotland, Wales, Eire, The Isle of Man and the Channel Isles only) to assist with the cost of adaptations and / or modifications to motorcycles, motor scooters, motorcycle / sidecar combinations, motor tricycles and / or quad-cycles to suit the needs of riders or passengers with disabilities.
Whatever the disability, The NABD are happy to help disabled people anywhere in the world with advice and information.
Our aim is to ensure that people with disabilities have access to the freedom and independence of motorcycling irrespective of whether they have a long history of motorcycling or are coming into the world of motorcycling for the first time.
The main aim of the NABD is to ensure that when it comes to motorcycling, a disability should not be a handicap.
