John Whittingdale attended the Bikes and Barges Motorcycle Show on Hythe Quay Maldon which was held to raise money for local charity, SWANS.

John was asked to choose the Best Bike in the Show and awarded the trophy to a home-engineered custom chopper built by Adrian Belcher. The event raised £1,500 for SWANS. The show was founded by Andy Harris of Andy Harris Custom Cycles which is celebrating 20 years in business in Maldon this year and it is organised by Steve House.
