Richard Hammond, star of BBC’s Top Gear, and Zog Ziegler, local motoring correspondent, joined staff at GCHQ at their Cheltenham HQ today to celebrate the purchase of a new life-saving motorbike for Severn Freewheelers, funded by GCHQ staff.
The GCHQ charity fund (GCFund), towards which staff donate, has provided the £13,000 needed to buy the new machine as part of its remit to support worthwhile causes. The bike will assist local charity Severn Freewheelers in their critical care service to people in Gloucestershire and the surrounding area.
