It is with great sadness that The Sussex Heart Charity announce the passing of Abby Goldin President and Founding Member of Brightona.

After suffering a heart attack Abby approached the Sussex Heart Charity to discuss organising a new event called Brightona.

Abby’s hard work and determination was paramount in making Brightona the amazing success that it is now. The Sussex Heart Charity will be eternally grateful to Abby for enabling us to continue Saving Lives In Sussex; Abby will be sadly missed not only as a staunch supporter of our work but also as a very dear friend to us all.

Brightona has been hugely successful and has raised approximately £150,000 since 2004; with over 15,000 motorcycle enthusiasts attending year in and year out from all over the United Kingdom and Europe, Brightona is probably the biggest charity bike event in England – certainly in Sussex.

Abby’s funeral will be held this coming Friday 17th March, 12 pm at the Lawn memorial cemetery in Woodingdean, Brighton.

Our deepest condolences go to his family and friends at this time.
