POTTERIES & SOUTH CHESHIRE MGOC CHARITY ROAD RUN 2017
What an excellent day we had 90 cars on the front lawn at Gawsworth Hall – the day started off fine but around lunch time we had slight drizzle –
We had visitors from Yorkshire / Lake District / Worcestershire / Wales / many thanks to all that attended and supported the day – see you in 2018
Thanks also to Katie from the Air Ambulance, Nigel from the Staffordshire Blood Bikers, Jason with MG & Alfa spares and to the members of this club that worked very hard today in helping and making it happen, and to those that supported the run.
The long distance award was won by Martin Dean from Newton in Cartmel
Something until this point in time myself and the members of this club were not really aware of, after meeting them we are fully aware of the great work that they do – remarkably not just blood as the name suggests, but stuff like breast milk and “poo” yes thats right “poo”, and vital instruments.
These volunteer people are available to be called upon 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
This is one of the Charities we are supporting this year via our Charity Road Run in September, and we are hoping to have one of their ambassadors at the event as well to talk to participants.If you ever see the Blood Bikers at a show – go and talk to them, it’s worthwhile

Charity Run – 2016
On Monday November 14th we presented cheques for £1800 each to Katie from the Staffordshire Air Ambulance and to Julie from the Donna Louise Childrens Hospice. After receiving the cheques both representatives gave a short talk on the ongoing work that they carry out, and did answer any questions that the members had about their respective organisations, both expressed sincere thanks for the contribution we had made to their ongoing work.

Cars in the Park Lichfield July 2016
Here we are at Lichfield Cars in the Park on the 3rd July meeting up with Katie who works for the Midlands Air Ambulance, this being one of the Charities that we have supported for a number of years
Trying out the very nice SV belongs to Stan and Di, and also Ray and Jenny’s beautiful MGA, uncertain of which she liked the best, it is always nice when the Charity we raise money for comes and meets us like this in these surroundings
If you would like to support the Air Ambulance please join us on our charity run.
Charity Road Run 2015
After yet another very successful run attended by close to 100 MG’s at Gawsworth Hall, the sum raised from the day was £4200 – MG owners are very generous along with the sponsors.
Cheque presentations were made to representatives from the Staffordshire Air Ambulance – an organisation we have supported for several years now – and one that perhaps you hope you will never have cause to meet on a personal level – but very glad you have supported them if ever you do.
We also donated to a local Children’s Hospice – The Donna Louise Trust – having visited them they carry out great works in times of tremendous stress – and the club are proud to support them.
All the supporters who come and collect the cheques tell us about the works they carry out – sometimes heart rending .
In 2016 we are again supporting these Charities – so why not come along and help us in our challenge to try and better the 2015 effort, have a great day out and feel good about it.
