Classic Car Rally

Classic Car Rally in Aid of Weldmar Hospice Dorchester

On Sunday 7th of June, Shillingstone House welcomed the Transport of Yesteryear's 'Hardy Country Classic Tour' 2015, a classic vehicle rally in aid of Weldmar Hospicecare Trust.  Over 80 cars traveled the 70 mile route through Hardy country, stopping at Shillingstone House for a picnic lunch from 12 noon to 1.30 pm.  The Rally drivers were soon joined by many other enthusiasts to look at the cars and to picnic in the sunshine.

The Rally itself raised £770 and the stop off at Shillingstone House raised a further £285.18 which was fantastic.  Shillingstone House would like to thank Martin Carwardine & Co for giving us the coffee and tea for free - £98.10 of the total came from the Coffee Stall -  Rob Beale Ltd for the Portable Loos that they lent us and Brandon Tool Hire for the mats which made the entrance to the field smooth enough for the cars.  We could not have done without their generous help.
