A South Shropshire Family Business Raises £1200.00 for Macmillan at Their Annual Classic Vehicle Day. (20th May 2015)

A South Shropshire Family Business Raises £1200.00 for Macmillan at Their Annual Classic Vehicle Day.

Eaton Manor Country Estate near Church Stretton held its second annual Classic Vehicle Day on Sunday with an array of classic and interesting vehicles on display, from a Riley RME to Morris Travellers, as well as a Lotus Elan and a Nova kit car.

Entry was free of charge for cars and visitors, with the £1200 raised from light refreshments and a bar, together with a raffle and donation pots. All proceeds will go Macmillan Cancer Support in Shropshire as part of Eaton Manor’s ongoing support of the charity.

Owner Nichola Cariss said: “Thank you to everyone who brought their vehicles and to all the visitors who came along to admire some amazing pieces of machinery from the last century.

“A special thank you to everyone who supported the event by donating raffle prizes and giving up their time to help with refreshments, sell raffle tickets and vehicle marshalling on the day.

“Thanks to everyone’s generosity a staggering £1200.00 was raised.

“Next year’s event at Eaton Manor will be on Sunday, 22nd May 2016, so if you fancy coming along for a relaxed afternoon in beautiful South Shropshire and meeting some interesting people with their vehicles please do put the date in your diary.”
