Man's dying wish fulfilled
by Angela Cole
Staff at a Tonbridge bike shop have been praised for their part in
helping a man fulfil his dying wish.
The trio working at Fast Lane Motorcycles in Priory Street – Jamie
Kellmanno, Justin Oglivie and Stuart McIvor – were approached to
help Daryl Mallinson, from Tonbridge, stage a surprise trip for his
best mate, Carl Robson, who was diagnosed with cancer in his
oesophagus and spine in December.
Mr Mallinson had booked a three-day track day in Cartagena, Spain,
but were a bike short. They loaned them a bike for their trip last
Following their generosity, Mr Robson, from West Drayton, London,
posted his heartfelt thanks on Facebook, through event organisers
No Limits Trackdays, which then received hundreds of comments from
around the world.
In his thank you, Mr Robson wrote: “My final dream and last wish
was that myself and Daryl get to have one last big ride out and/or
track day together – doing what we love together in each others
company – motorbikes!
“These guys don’t know myself or Daryl from Adam! Yet, they have
lent us their race prepared, race ready championship bike – their
pride and joy R1... They have entrusted two complete strangers with
their “pride and joy” race bike to go and have one last “Hoorah”
and fun. They are dream makers who have made a dying man and his
best friend’s wish come true - from the bottom of my heart and the
depths of my soul…..from myself and Daryl…thank you.”
