Bury St Edmunds charity Workwise has received a surprise £500 donation after supplying the team strip for a motorcycle sidecar team.

Trainees from the social enterprise group produced the strip for the Go GP sidecar team who represented the Classic Motorcycle Club at the famous Isle of Man TT race last year.

The team’s manager, Jimmy Mann, was so impressed with their new kit that he recommended Workwise to the masonic lodge he belongs to, Royal St Edmunds 1008 - the oldest of Bury’s six lodges.

The group decided to donate £500 to the charity.

Jimmy said: “I was very impressed with Workwise.

“Not just by the quality of their work, but at how they help people with mental ill health gain qualifications and get back into employment.”
Workwise Enterprise Manager Valerie Beresford said: “We are delighted that Jimmy appreciated what we do, and we are grateful for the donation from the masons of Royal St Edmunds 1008. Donations like this are vital.”
