The Darcy Ward Foundation are delighted to accept the proceeds from the sale of a very special book auctioned through eBay earlier this week.

Thank you to all involved in producing the book, the very lucky winner of the auction, and to all that continue to support Darcy and his rehabilitation.                                                                                This book was produced earlier this year and presented to Darcy Ward as a memento of his speedway career.
 
It is a 10” x 8” hardback book, with 240 pages packed with 350 pictures and 42,000 words.
The pictures span his entire career, with pictures of his early days in Australia, right through to his final meetings for Swindon.
 
There are inputs in the book from many of his close family and friends, each writing a personal and often touching message to Darcy.
 
These inputs are from, Chris Holder, Greg Hancock, Nick Morris, ‘Monster Joe Parsons’, Neil and Suzi Middleditch, Matt Ford, George Ward (Darcy’s Dad), Jim Lawrence, Rosco, Mark Lemon, Nigel Pearson, Davey Watt and Jeff Davies (the photographer who created the book).
 
Only 12 copies of the book exist – they are owned by Darcy himself and some of the contributors mentioned above.
