2004 World Superbike champion James Toseland and fellow WSBK star Chris Walker will headline a special ten pin bowling event to raise money for the Chris Jones Memorial Fund on Monday 10th July.

The event, to be held at Rotherham Superbowl, will be compeered by legendary commentary duo Jack Burnicle and James Whitham. Leon Haslam and Karl Harris are also confirmed, with most of the BSB paddock expected to attend.

Further details of the evening and its worthy cause can be found in the open letter below:

Hi, I'm Steve Brookes and I work for Putoline Oil. Bike racing is my first love and I'm fortunate enough to be around some of the teams and people in my line of work. I was, like so many of you, left badly shocked by losing one of the sports' brightest emerging talents. Chris Jones, who was only 14 but had already demonstrated his huge potential in winning the 2004 MRO 125GP championship and in tasting victory on the Red Bull Rookies machine at BSB level last year; his tragic death at Cadwell Park stole this talent away from us.

More importantly, he was lost to his parents Pam and Clive, his sister Lucy and beyond. They are bravely continuing with their Motorcycle business in Droitwich and have founded the Chris Jones Memorial Fund which has already had tremendous support, but wish to officially launch the fund to the racing and industry communities to help realise their wish to purchase an image intensifier (mobile x-ray unit). This will allow medics to assess rider injuries and provide immediate diagnosis of fractures-which would also provide accurate detail for hospitals. This piece of kit is around ?100,000.

To give this fund the best possible start, I am honoured to have been asked by the family to organise a Ten Pin bowling event to be held at Rotherham Superbowl on the evening of Monday 10th July from 7.30 until around midnight.

There are 3 ways you can help:

1. Paying ?25 per person (maximum 8 to a lane), ?15 to just be there (includes a quality buffet).
2. Providing a high quality prize for the on night raffle.
3. Providing a special piece of Racing Memorabilia that will be auctioned on the night.

I have already received incredible support for the initial plans and I can promise some very special guests from the racing world and a sell-out is assured for this ticket only event.

You can help by doing any or ALL of the above! Please help and let's get this superb fund moving, for Chris, his family and the future safety of racing. My contact details are mobile 07967 480354, home 01709 721906 (speak to my wife Glo if I'm not there), fax 01709 721907 or at sbrookes23@btinternet.com .

Don't hesitate to give me a call to discuss any ideas or if you need more information, and thanks for reading.

Hope to hear from you soon,

Steve
