Land Rover enthusiasts boost Trust funds

A giant cheque for more than £7500 was presented to the Trust by a group of Land Rover enthusiasts at the weekend.

This year’s annual Charity Land Rover Run from Kent to Brugge began at the Trust’s home, the National Memorial to the Few at Capel-le-Ferne, on 6 June, before heading across the Channel.

Organised by Land Rover enthusiasts in Kent, the event featured more than 40 classic Land Rovers registered between 1948 and 1975. The organisers decided to donate the proceeds of the event to the Trust to mark the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.

Receiving the cheque from organiser Peter Wales, site manager Jules Gomez thanked the enthusiasts for their support and said the Trust was looking forward to welcoming them back to Capel-le-Ferne in 2016. The group then enjoyed a chance to look around the Trust’s new Scramble Experience within The Wing.LR1LR
