Eaton Manor 2017 Classic Vehicle Day

Posted & filed under News.

On Sunday 21st May, we held our 4th annual Classic Vehicle Day at Eaton Manor and are delighted to have raised £3300 on the day for Macmillan Cancer Support in Shropshire!

Thank you to everyone who supported us to make the day such a success.

We had an amazing turnout of 160 exhibiting vehicles, spanning all ages from a Lagonda Rapier, a Singer Junior, an SS Jaguar to modern classics including a Humber Sceptre, Morris Minor and other popular cars of their time. We also had unique one off specials, an armoured personnel carrier and stationary steam and oil engines.

All vehicles were welcome to exhibit free of charge, the only criteria being that they were much loved by their owners.

Visitors also attended in their droves and enjoyed wandering around the array of vehicles, as well as a number of special interest groups on display including Shropshire Astronomical SocietyTelford and District Amateur Radio SocietyThe Strettons Model Railway ClubShropshire Linux User GroupBishops Castle Railway Society

Renowned classic car journalist, Fuzz Townshend, also visited on the day, with many of the exhibitors over the moon to show him their vehicles.

Entry was free of charge for cars and visitors, with the £3,300.00 raised from refreshments including a barbecue, bar and afternoon teas, and a tombola, raffle and donation pots. All proceeds go Macmillan in Shropshire as part of our ongoing support of the charity.

THANK YOU to everyone who exhibited their vehicles and to all the visitors who came along to admire some amazing pieces of machinery from the last century and support such a fantastic cause.

A SPECIAL THANK YOU to everyone who supported the event by donating raffle prizes and giving up their time to help with refreshments, sell raffle tickets and vehicle marshalling etc on the day.
