JDF is hoping to extend its disabled holiday accommodation in the near future.
Looking back on two successful years since it was opened by Joey’s widow Linda and TT star John McGuinness in 2010, Braddan Bridge House has welcomed many guests to enjoy breaks in the island.
Kevin Quirk, of the JDF, said: ‘During TT 2012 we invited former TT winner and MotoGP rider Eddie Laycock to stay with us for race week. Eddie and his family had a brilliant holiday plus it gave Eddie the opportunity to catch up with [former world motorcycle stars] Kevin Schwantz and Randy Mamola.’
At the same time, another terminally ill guest realised his ambition to visit the TT and, courtesy of Paul Phillips and Milky Quayle, of Government Motorsport Development met John McGuinness, Guy Martin and Simon Andrews.
The charity hopes to begin extending the house in 2013 to 2014.
