'Our Story' is a short film produced by the Shakespeare Hospice and their volunteers with the aim to raise awareness on childhood and teenage bereavement. It has recently been entered into the Charity Film Awards, and it would be much appreciated if you could take a minute out of your day to vote for 'Our Story' and spread the word.

Thank you,

Ingrid Ash

[Ingrid is Kevin's youngest daughter. Kevin Ash was killed in a motorcycle accident whilst testing in South Africa over five year's ago, in January 2013. The Shakespeare Hospice, in Stratford Upon Avon where the family live, has provided support to her and the rest of the family. Ingrid has volunteered to work there to help others who have also been bereaved. They have made the film shown here to help raise awareness of the issues of bereavement in children of school age, and it has been nominated for an award.]

Kevin Ash Fund eBay listings

Please come and look at the items I am selling on eBay to help fund the girls' continuing education.

Motorcycle clothing mainly, and some bike bits, including panniers.

Please, please, please follow me (tooweeler) and watch the items and buy some, or at least make an offer. It all helps to make more space in the garage and clear stuff I really don't need.

Kevin Ash (1959 -2013) - Tributes from friends and colleagues

Erin Baker, Head of Motoring for the Telegraph Media Group, delivering her tribute at Kevin Ash's funeral

.... by Erin Baker


Ten days after Kevin died, I gave birth to my second son. It's been a stark reminder of that old cliche, but nonetheless profound truth, that life goes on.
Since my son was born, Caroline and I have been emailing each other at strange times of the night, me because I'm kept awake by a squawking baby, Caroline because she has had an overwhelming mountain of stuff to organise, so this tribute to Kevin is just as much a tribute to Caroline, a formidable woman; as she told me - I am Kevin, just female and a lot, lot shorter.

Caroline and Laurien

By Caroline

My Kevin, I have lived with you for many years, but not nearly enough.

I remember so clearly the first time I saw you. I fell in love with you and our relationship began without any hesitation.

My fondest memories of those early days are always of you arriving on your bike to pick me up- both of us enjoying the mad fast bike journeys together (we were often late). I remember clearly seeing you ride towards me over the bridge and each time it filled me with so much joy.
