‘We feel very proud to serve our fellow Canadians who are in need,’ club says

A Canadian motorcycle club is lending many helping hands to those affected by the November floods.

Sikh Motorcycle Club Canada has been working since early December to restore flood-ridden properties in areas like Yarrow and the Harrison Hot Springs area to help people who may have otherwise been unable to afford to make their properties livable again.

“We would like to express our sympathy with the Canadian brothers and sisters, who suffered a significant loss financially and emotionally due to the recent flooding,” the club said in a statement on Tuesday (Jan. 4). “We know many generous fellow Canadians offered unconditional help with food and shelter.”

Members of the Sikh Motorcycle Club arranged excavating equipment and dump trucks to remove silt, mud and debris left behind by November’s natural disaster. This service started on Dec. 4, and the club said it would continue every weekend until affected people are able to settle at their properties once more.

In addition to work in Yarrow and the Harrison area, the club has worked on properties in Princeton and the Columbia Valley.

If you or anyone you know still needs help after the floods, send an email to the club at info@SikhMotorcycleClub.com or call 778-688-SIKH (7454).

Established in 2002, Sikh Motorcycle Club Canada describes itself as “a group of passionate riders who while enjoying the perks of riding, love to volunteer for community needs.” There are approximately 150 members.

CLARIFICATION: Numerous property owners have indicated the property undergoing repairs may not be within the boundaries of Harrison Hot Springs, but rather in an area directly adjacent to the village. The Observer apologizes for the confusion.
