‘I didn’t do it for any other reason than to help’ - the Aussie Star paying back the UK

King’s Lynn racer Ty Proctor is keeping busy – and he’s signed up as a volunteer for the NHS.
Aussie ace Proctor is working for a water company in South Yorkshire, where he is based, and is classed as a key worker. But he’s also offered to help the NHS as a way of saying thanks to the UK which has been his home for 12 years.
He said: “As I am working and classed as a key worker, I am still able to go to work every day and I feel healthy with no symptoms. I thought that I am in a situation where I could help those that aren’t so fortunate with what’s happening, so I signed up. Nearly half a million people have also signed up so we just have to wait for an email to see what we can help with.
“If I can help then I will always do my best and give back to a country that helped me, and provided me with a home for the last 12 years. I didn’t do it for any other reason than to help. I went public about it because I felt there were so many riders who don’t have anything to do, and we could do a bit to help.”
