THE plight of Vietnamese children left brain damaged in motorbike accidents has touched the consciences of members of the Grafton Gladiators Motorcycle Club.

Clarence Valley women Roz Petty and Lyn Moore have been raising money for orphans, which they will take to Vietnam on their next trip later this year.

The club donated the money to the pair this morning at the club's headquarters in South Grafton.

The full story will be in tomorrow's Daily Examiner.
