A FOUR-TIME world superbike champion has been in the area to help speed-up the success of a local business’s fundraising project.

Carl Fogarty visited NRH Engineering Ltd in Seaton Ross, who make farming machinery and are raising money for the Marie Curie Cancer Care charity.

The retired former champion said: “Cancer is one of those things I try to help out. I lost my best friend last year to cancer and it wasn’t a hard decision to make to come here and support them.”

Carl also signed a gold roller to help increase the value of the machine at auction.
