Charity Run

POTTERIES & SOUTH CHESHIRE MGOC CHARITY ROAD RUN 2018

2018 was another excellent year, again exploring the proper roads of Staffordshire and the adjoining moorlands, on this occasion just missing the fires that had taken place shortly before.

Starting off and finishing at Gawsworth Hall, a picturesque and historical setting in Cheshire, all the cars enjoyed the pleasure of parking on the front lawn overlooking the lake.

 

 

In 2018 we raised £4600 – this was distributed to the Donna Louise Childrens hospice, Staffordshire Blood Bikers and the Staffordshire Air Ambulance all received £1400 pounds each, whilst via Gawsworth Hall we donated £400 to The St Johns Ambulance.

 

 

Cheques were presented at our Thursday club night in September
In 2019 our Charity Road Run will take place on Sunday September 1st so why not make it a date to come and join.

 

 

 

 

Cheers

LATEST NEWS

 

At our clubnight on the 13th February, we very much enjoyed the company of Nigel, Ian and Louisa, these 3 people are members of the Shropshire and Staffordshire Blood Bikers group.

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

 

sam_3643On 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.

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

 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 _DSC1404 v2supported 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.

Finally we have supported a small animal charity – we buy the hay for the winter_DSC1399 v2

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.
