BBC Spotlight reporter John Ayres contacted Daniel Lavery this evening to arrange a television news piece with Devon Freewheelers. They would like to meet the emergency bikers to wire them up with 'lipstick' cameras and also place television cameras on the bikes to record a blue light transfer between the RD&E and Torbay hospitals.

They want to interview some of the staff from the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and if possible a beneficiary of the service. This media attention will explode Devon Freewheelers onto every television screen in the South West of England and will give the charity the exposure it has been desperate to receive for a long time.

The Mayor of Honiton, Cllr Peter Flemming; who has survived two heart transplants, (after the first one was rejected) is a huge supporter of Devon Freewheelers and has been asked this evening to get involved on behalf of Devon Freewheelers EVS.

In other news, Westpoint Arena in Exeter have donated four tickets for next years 'Holiday on Ice - Energia' Show to Devon Freewheelers for a New Year Raffle prize. Valued at £120 the donation is gratefully received and has prompted ideas from other members on how best to use this stunning gesture.

Earlier today, Daniel Lavery spoke with the management for the smash hit ITV show 'The X-Factor - The Live Tour' to request some tickets for their forthcoming live show at the O2 Arena in 2011.

The management, to Daniel's surprise suggested something else that only dreams could be made of - and DFW's supporters are urged to keep a close eye on the website for further updates. Until then confidentiality prohibits any further disclosure pending feasibility of their suggestions. Intrigued? Watch this space...........
