Exiles ride out for kids

The Abu Dhabi Exiles, our friendly neighbourhood biker gang, reached out once again to the community's most needy kids this week, making a generous donation of two computers with monitors and a printer to the Ability Centre for Special Needs.

"Every year we have an annual party and we ask people to sponsor us and we donate the money to some kind of charity." said Jo Jo Vlassenbroeck, road captain of the Exiles.

"For a couple of years, we've given money away but this year we asked for a list of items that the Ability Centre needed. The computers we chose will last for years so they will remember in years from now who supported them."

Several Exiles were on hand to deliver the hardware including Volker Hemmer, general manager of IIG Insulation, and Dave Bowles, general manager of Readymix.

The Ability Centre for Special Needs, which is open to all nationalities, serves about 30 kids mostly with cerebral palsy and autism. The Exiles chose to support the lesser known charity because the school hasn't recieved as much attention as some other facilities in the capital.

"We are happy to support causes like the Ability Centre because it's for a good purpose. It shows another side of the riders to the public - we're not just hell raisers." said member Helmut Reichelt.
