Essex air ambulance give away helmet prize
ESSEX air ambulance charity chiefs have announced the winner of their exclusive eBay-inspired motorcycle helmet competition.
Steve Adams from Black Notley is now the proud owner of a helmet which features unique ‘Motorcycle Run’ branding after successfully bidding online, raising �180 for charity in the process.
Motorcycle Run participants were given the opportunity to bid up until the auction closed on September 18.
A delighted Mr Adams said: “When I saw the helmet on eBay I thought, I want that, but I really expected to be beaten.
“To my surprise it actually fits me. I’ve worn it quite a few times and it’s been recognized a fair bit.

“The helmet is the best thing I ever bought on eBay and the ambulance is definitely the best cause there is in Essex.”
