Matt Wilson is the lucky winner of a custom motorbike from a Teen Challenge North East Scotland prize draw.

The winner of a custom made motorbike as part of a north-east charity’s prize draw has been announced.

Matt Wilson, who is originally from Ballymena, Northern Ireland, is now the new owner of the custom old school bobber motorbike after entering the raffle to support the work of Teen Challenge North East Scotland.

The addiction recovery charity organised the prize draw in an effort to raise vital funds for their Benaiah and Sunnybrae facilities.

Mr Wilson entered the prize draw in April and was “happy to support” the charity.

He said: “I am over the moon to have won this bike.  I cannot wait to ride it, showing it off. I can’t believe I have won.

“Noticing it was a draw for charity and supporting young adults I had no problem parting with cash to support the cause. Everybody in life needs a helping hand at some point, Teen Challenge is that helping hand.”

The bike was built by Teen Challenge’s area manager, Gordon Cruden, and it was painted to represent the organisation’s men’s addiction recovery centre, Sunnybrae, which is based near Fyvie.

Mr Cruden said: “A huge congratulations to Matt for winning the Sunnybrae bike. He now owns a truly unique custom bike, and in the process has contributed to our work to put hope within reach of hurting addicts.”
