Members of the Cambodia Motorcycle Club get ready to ride.

CHILDREN throughout provincial Cambodia are set to benefit from a new Phnom Penh-based charity operating under the guise of a motorcycle club.

Cambodia Motorcycle Club founder Murray Heath said the group was formed "by a few guys" dissatisfied with the work of other charities and aid organisations in Cambodia.

"We just wanted to start up something that could raise money without being an NGO," Heath said. "We needed a flag to fly under and a lot of expats have motorbikes."

Money raised via a minimum membership of US$10 a year per family would go directly to those who needed it, he said.

The group would also hold motorcycle-related events such as Christmas toy runs to children outside of Phnom Penh.

Heath said the group would meet monthly at various local establishments with the intention of being transparent in all its activities.

"Every cent raised will go to where it's supposed to," he said. He invited those interested in knowing more to email him at murray@citylink.com.kh.
