Our Previous Classic Vehicle Day 2016
On Sunday, 22nd May 2016 we held our third annual Classic Vehicle Day at Eaton Manor and are delighted to have raised £1600.00 for Macmillan Cancer Support in Shropshire
We had a bumper turnout of exhibiting cars (well over 100), including kit cars, specials, classic cars, modern classics, vintage vehicles, tractors, landrovers and bikes, and a great number of visitors too.
Entry was free of charge for cars and visitors, with the £1,600.00 raised from refreshments and light lunches, together with a raffle and donation pots. All proceeds go Macmillan in Shropshire as part of our ongoing support of the charity.
Telford & District Amateur Radio Society also took part on the day. They operated a Special Event radio call sign for the event ‘GB1EMC‘ and visitors were invited to try their hand at making radio contact. Contacts were made across the globe from Kentucky to Turkey! They should be attending next year’s event as well.
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.
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 on the day.
