BELOW:  King's Lynn Speedway captain, Rory Schlein, is trying to raise £10,000 for Breast Cancer Care and is growing a beard with a view to having it shaved off at the end of the season. The charity is in memory of Gemma Boxall who died earlier this year. Gemma's brother, Lee Broughton, is Rory's mechanic. Besides this cheque, Bob's daughter Sarah also offered Rory £10 for every point he scored that night. This added another £90 to a great cause. Sarah has worked in the screening unit at QEH for around 15 years.
