About the event:

The event, now in its 9th year is the Rotary Clubs’ biggest charity annual fundraiser which actively raises thousands of pounds for both national and regional charities. Over £120,000 has been donated since its inception.

Thanks to the tremendous success of the Tewkesbury Classic Vehicle Festival event in August 2018, the Rotary Club of Tewkesbury were able to make a number of donations, including £6000 to the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity and £3000 to Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice.

Sue Ryder are a marvellous charity that deliver hospice and neurological care for people facing a life-changing diagnosis. By displaying your car, or by visiting our show you will be making a valuable contribution to both this charity and the stellar work of the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity. Since 1991, the Midlands Air Ambulance have responded to more than 50,000 missions averaging 2,000 per year, making it one of the longest established and busiest air ambulance organisations in the UK. The charity responsible for funding and operating three air ambulances serving the communities of six Midlands counties: Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire and the West Midlands.
