We had a good turnout of members for our June clubnight which was a drive over to Norfolk for a meal at the Three Horseshoes in Roydon. Thanks to all concerned. Huge thanks too are due to everyone involved in another superb Annual Classic Car Run held on Sunday 10 June, with profits going to PHAB. We had 64 cars take part journeying around 80 miles in total from Sacrewell Farm at Thornaugh via Great Gidding, Spaldwick, Kimbolton, Catworth, Winwick and Polebrook to lunch at Milton Golf Club near Peterborough, and then via Marholm, Ufford, Stamford, Apethorpe, Fotheringhay and Wansford to the finish at Elton Hall. We made £450.15 for PHAB and photos of the day can be viewed here. Congratulations to Brian Knight in his immaculate MG VA on winning Car of the Day and to Chris & Kate Brown for taking the Lyon’s Pride of Ownership award with their SWB Land Rover.
Also in June we had a successful Charity BBQ Evening on Wednesday 27th with PHAB. Thanks to everyone who supported the evening and to all those who donated prizes for the Raffle, which raised a further £334 whilst the Club also donated a further sum to cover the £207 cost of PHAB members’ food. Our donations to PHAB from the two events therefore totalled £991. Well done everyone!
