Classics for Carers - 07/06/2020


Sunday 7th June: building on the motoring community’s united show of support for NHS carers during the inaugural event on 3rd May, Classics for Carers returned to offer some summer solace, in the continued period of at-home isolation. 

As social distancing measures remained, the motoring and motorsport sector endured a prolonged period of postponed and cancelled meetings, shows and races. 

The first event in May saw a significant uptake in Classics for Carers participants, bringing together the individual and community fundraising exhibition by car and bike enthusiast across the UK, raising well over £13,500. 

Drawn from generous donations and the sale of rally plates and stickers, show goers and passers-by made the “at home show” a truly unique experience, and of course all profits doing to charity. 

The 7th June show provided another opportunity to show one’s pride and joy on the driveway, after the success of May’s event.

Daniel Barton & Chris Linfoot, our 2 Area B coordinators, followed the footsteps of member Pete Argent, and duly displayed their Urs. They somehow dodged the rain showers and got their cars out to represent the qOC.

 Well done to all who participated.
