Thanks to all who supported our Charity Fun Day on 25 June in aid of Myeloma UK. In all, combined with monies donated from our Annual Classic Car Run, we raised £2000. Your generosity is appreciated.
Huge thanks to Barry & Liz Aistrup and everyone in their team for putting on such a brilliant Annual Classic Car Run. Around 65 cars started the event from Spalding Golf Club and headed through Lincolnshire on a 50 mile run to an excellent lunch halt at Branston Hall Hotel near Lincoln. After lunch there was a further 38 miles of driving to the finish on the Terrace at Belvoir Castle in Rutland. Prizes were presented by His Grace The Duke of Rutland to our winners:
The Lyon’s Pride Trophy, judged by the organisers, was awarded to Steve and Val Freeman for their 1956 Jaguar XK140.
The ‘Car of the Day’ voted for by all participants was David and Sian Thomas’ 1948 Jaguar MkIV.
Our July clubnight is the water taxi trip on Tuesday 11th. And don’t forget that also in July we have our Club Barbecue at Holbeach St Johns on Tuesday 25th.
In August, we have a clubnight run on Tuesday 8th and our Norfolk Trundle on 20th. We will also be at both the Boston and Stamford Classic Car Shows.
