For a third successive year Headway Essex teamed up with the Charity Classic Vehicle Club to organise the Essex Classic Vehicle Show on Sunday.
With over 220 classic vehicles from across the decades on display, the event attracted over 1,500 visitors to Lower Castle Park. With a combined vehicle history of over 7,000 years, it was a real treat for visitors to view the classic vehicles in all their glory and chat to the owners.
An arena show presenting the best vehicles was the main event as a number of proud owners showed off their cherished cars. Trophies were presented for categories including best pre-war car and vehicle of the show.
The winner of the coveted ‘Best Vehicle at Show’ was a Bedford MJ 1979 [pictured below].
As well as plenty of spectacular vehicles, crowds were also entertained by the Destiny Majorettes, acrobats Team Kinetix and the Kingsland Community Choir. There was also a wonderful selection of craft, gift and food stalls.
Record amounts raised
The final amount raised is still being calculated but initial projections show the event brought in more than £8,500; the most money it has raised to date!
The total raised will help us to continue to provide rehabilitation and support for brain injury survivors and their families and carers in Essex.
A special thanks
It was an absolute delight to see so many people attend and raise such a fantastic amount of money. We’re also incredibly grateful to all the classic vehicle owners for their support in making this such a wonderful event and for the Charity Classic Vehicle Club for deciding to partner with us again this year.
A special thanks as always to our wonderful team of volunteers, including the Essex Police Cadets who helped us run the event on the day. And of course, event sponsors Elms Price, RH Specialist Insurance, GH Motorcycles and to Big Yellow for giving us the space to store our event items.
