First ‘Classics for Carers’ event raised over £13,500 for NHS Charities Together in May
Building on the motoring community’s united show of support for NHS carers during its inaugural event, Classics for Carers returns to offer some summer solace, in the continued period of at-home isolation.
Set to return on 7 June, the ‘national stay at home motor show’ is once again inviting classic car and bike enthusiasts, clubs and businesses to exhibit a nation-wide show of appreciation for NHS carers and their remarkable effort and sacrifice throughout the pandemic.
Commenting on the event opener, organiser Nick Chivers said: “The response to the first event from classic car and bike owners, clubs and companies was truly inspirational.
“A real national statement of support for the brave and selfless NHS carers.
“On the day of the show, the individual and community led micro-motor shows were united across our media channels, to allow people to share their vehicles, displays and fundraising support.”
As social distancing measures remain in place to protect the NHS and save lives, the motoring and motorsport sector endures a prolonged period of postponed and cancelled meetings, shows and races.
With motorsport’s headline series preparing for the possibility of a season with no races, it’s not just Formula 1 bosses facing a sparse calendar and a lack of visiting fans.
Many of the much loved and crowd-pleasing gatherings of enthusiasts, have seen dates pushed back to the autumn or cancelled entirely until 2021.
Bringing together the individual and community fundraising exhibitions by car and bike enthusiasts across the UK and overseas, the national event raised over £13,500.
Drawn from generous donations and the sale of event specific rally plates and stickers, ‘show goers’ and passers-by made the at home show a truly unique experience.
The motoring community can once again purchase souvenir event rally plates or stickers for their vehicles for the 7 June event or make a donation via the event’s JustGiving page.
Classics for Carers is an entirely charitable event, with funds raised being donated to NHS Charities Together, the membership organisation representing, supporting and championing NHS charities across the UK.
