The Imps are back in business PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 20 May 2015

The Imps is a charity that helps children, many from disadvantaged backgrounds, taking them off the street and into a disciplined military-like environment through a motorcycle display team consisting of children aged 5 to 16.

Two months ago the team was close to closure after losing its financial support and sponsors. £36,000 was needed to save the Imps.

A very successful Crowdfunding campaign has raised over £18,000 so far. The campaign is still accepting donations at
On Monday 18th May two former members of the Imps dug deep into their own pockets to make up the necessary funds. The Imps now have a brand new fleet of shiny motorcycles to start the season.

Roy Pratt MBE, Team founder and Director commenting on the generosity said: “We have had 45 successful years putting on displays all over the world and up and down the length of the UK. In the process of doing this we have developed thousands of children into confident young adults. The fact that it’s these very ex-Imps that have saved our future puts a huge lump in my throat. Jamie and Graham, through their very successful businesses JBW Group and Silver, have today saved the Imps.”

The Imps are back in business, with new bikes, spares and a refreshing brand ready to start the 2015 season.
