Sherborne Classic & Supercars Show recently celebrated a hugely successful event at Sherborne Castle by presenting cheques totalling £55,000 to many local charities, including Yeovil Hospital Charity, Children’s Air Ambulance and Somerset Sight.
Volunteers from Rotary, Lions, Round Table and Friends of Sherborne Classic Car Show put in countless hours of time which resulted in a hugely successful event, attended by an estimated 10,000 members of the public.
Rory O’Donnell, chairman of the organising committee, said, “This event shows the power of collaboration between voluntary organisations and we are delighted to support many worthwhile charities with the funds raised. We are also indebted to the major sponsors, wealth management firm Atkins Ferrie, exhibitors, members of the public who supported us, and to Mr and Mrs Digby, who shared their beautiful home and grounds creating the perfect backdrop to the eclectic mix of vehicles. There really was something for everyone at the event – from ‘petrol-heads’ to families – and we are already ‘revving up’ for 2024’s show at the castle, on 21st July 2024.”
The full list of charities having benefitted is as follows:
