Classics at the Castle raised £42,850!

Awards of £42,850 were made to 19 local charities at an event hosted by show presidents, Edward and Maria Wingfield Digby at Sherborne Castle on 26th November

Stuart Annett- Show Secretary says –

‘We are delighted that this year’s Classic and Supercar Show was again able to benefit local Charities. The funds have been donated thanks to the voluntary work of the members of the Rotary Clubs of Yeo Vale, Sherborne Castles and Brue Valley. The recipients provide help for young people and the needy, contribute to vital medical research and services, help local organisations that care for the sick and those that work with young people. This has only been possible thanks to the tremendous support received from the motoring community, our sponsors, car clubs, private car exhibitors, traders, suppliers, the national and local media. We are delighted to announce that over the past five years the show has raised a total of £171,000 for important and good causes in Dorset and Somerset’ . Charities supported with £42,850 from the 2018 event by the combined efforts of the Rotary clubs Brue Valley, Sherborne Castles and Yeo Vale.
