Good Evening All
As we move into the latter part of our UK summer, the events we are attending keep on coming! This weekend saw us attend both the Oswestry Show and the Stafford Classic Car Show. This event report concerns the latter, which was held at the historic Stafford Castle. This evening’s report was written by Helen B, who at this rate, will very shortly be promoted to Deputy Editor!!!
JUST CLASSIC ON SUNDAY 3RD AUGUST
What a wonderful setting for the Stafford Classic Car Show today. Set in the sprawling grounds of Stafford Castle the visitors were treated to an array of all types of vehicle. Tanks and tractors, lorries and cars, bikes and buses. The beautiful blue skies and warm weather encouraged the guests to ponder the displays and enjoy the trade stands and the team on the SSBB stand were busy answering questions about the blood bike history, the job we do, the people that do it and why we do it.
Helen B and Nigel B assisted by new member Lynne S welcomed the opportunity to keep raising awareness of this new charity into a new area within Staffordshire. The youngsters were so excited for the chance to sit on a blood bike and a few ‘oldies’ had their photographs taken sitting astride one of the Pans.
Amazingly £200.50 was received from our stand and we thank all the visitors for their support.
The Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress of Stafford spoke to us at length and kindly agreed for their photographs to be taken. They were very supportive of our work as were their companions, Councillor and Mrs Mike Smith.
Lucie, the young lady pictured on the mini bike (See below), was delighted for the photo opportunity!
It was a lovely surprise when “Team Collyer” arrived to say hi. Another husband and wife crew! All hands on deck for a while and plenty of help to pack up (thank you) and all back to the “Team Bundy” home for a well deserved cuppa and to reflect on another very successful and rewarding SSBB outing.
All in all another incredibly successful day for SSBB. We still have a number of events to go before the end of the “Even Season” so lets hope that the rest go as well as this one! Well done to Team’s Bundy & Collyer for all your hard work to date, it really is greatly appreciated. With this in mind, we are always looking for new members, so welcome and thank you to Lynne S, I hope you enjoyed your first SSBB experience!
