Ballyclare kits out tuba-playing, tricycle-riding entertainer

Workwear specialist Ballyclare has donated a waterproof coverall to a tuba-playing entertainer who rides around the country riding a recumbent tricycle.

Jon Hodkin, stage name InnerTuba, approached the PPE provider to acquire something to keep him warm and dry on his travels.

“Combining my passions for cycling and playing the tuba allows me to visit schools and community halls, meet different people and put on presentations of tuba music,” explained Jon.

“That involves cycling in all kinds of weather, and when I saw the sort of protective weatherproof clothing that Ballyclare manufactures I knew it was exactly what I needed.”

Ballyclare regional sales manager Anne Marshall said the company was more than happy to help and they donated one of their GORE-TEX waterproof coveralls to keep him riding in all weather conditions.

She added: “Jon has been putting on the InnerTuba concerts since 2000, and he obviously brings a lot of pleasure to people. One of our GORE-TEX  coveralls was the perfect solution to help keep him warm and dry on his travels.”
