A welcome cheque for a fantastic £600 is on its way to the Trust following the success of a classic car event at the site this summer.
More than 140 cars owned by members of Ramsgate Old Motor and Motorcycle Club were proudly displayed against the inspirational backdrop of the National Memorial to the Few and The Wing on Sunday 1 Sept.
The cars provided an extra attraction for visitors to the site, who were able to stroll amongst highly polished, lovingly presented old cars as well as paying their respects to the Few and visiting The Scramble Experience.
Club members have been visiting the site annually for many years, and near-perfect weather made 2019 particularly enjoyable, with the owners able to enjoy superb views across the Channel while visitors checked out their beautiful cars and bikes.
Many of the club members visited The Scramble Experience to learn more about the Battle of Britain and the Few and also visited the cafe and the shop, making it a great day for the Trust, which receives no public funding. The additional donation of £600 is a considerable boost to the Trust’s continuing fund-raising efforts.
The Trust is looking forward to welcoming the club back next year, during what will be the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.
