Joey Dunlop DVD Provides Boost For Foundation

“Thank you to all concerned for supporting the Joey Dunlop Foundation via royalties from 'No Ordinary Joe'”
The Joey Dunlop Foundation has been presented with a cheque for more than
£2,600 generated from the proceeds of the film Joey Dunlop - No Ordinary Joe.

The donation was made at Braddan Bridge House on the Isle of Man TT course, the accommodation for disabled people built and run with money collected by the Joey Dunlop Foundation in memory of the legendary racer.

Joey Dunlop - No Ordinary Joe, published by Duke Video and produced by Waldovision, reflected on the man behind the road racing legend with previously unseen interviews and photos from the Dunlop family albums, contributions from friends, relatives and fellow racers, plus several extraordinary anecdotes about the 26-times TT winner.

“With interest in Joey Dunlop remaining so strong and the quality of this film, we aren't surprised it has been so well received by critics and customers worldwide,” said Duke Managing Director Peter Duke. “I am delighted we have been able to make this donation from the proceeds of sales to the Foundation created in Joey's memory to help its important work continue.”

Foundation Treasurer and Trustee Kevin Quirk added: “Joey's charity is now well established and enjoyed a very successful first year welcoming guests of all ages and disabilities to the Island.

“Although our facilities are unique, we were inundated with requests and unfortunately many potential visitors were left disappointed when we could not provide accommodation.”

“Although discussions are in the early stages, we do hope that with ongoing fund raising that we can either extend at Braddan Bridge or acquire a second property. The JDF committee are extremely proud of these facilities, we now have a truly remarkable facility in memory of Joey Dunlop.

“Thank you to all concerned for supporting JDF via royalties from No Ordinary Joe, and I would strongly recommend that if you have not purchased this DVD then place it at the top of your shopping list at TT2012.”

For those not at the TT, No Ordinary Joe is also available from the official Duke Video website: CLICK HERE for more information.
