Road run and display for classic vehicles and motorbikes in support of the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance and the Dorset County Hospital Cancer Appeal


Our 2018 event is already well into the planning stages and we will be supporting the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance , as always, and our second charity will be the Dorset County Hospital Cancer Appeal. The DCH appeal is raising funds towards a target of £1.75 million pounds to be used to provide radiotherapy services at Dorchester. The new Radiotherapy unit and Cancer Outpatients department will serve people across the North, West and Southern parts of the county and will save them having to travel to Poole for treatment.

We had a 'first' for Classics Around Dorset at our 2017 event, thanks to Chris and Laura who very kindly agreed to bring their Marshall steam engine and 'living van' along for the day. We're hoping that if we speak to them very nicely, they might come back again for 2018!

We are also hoping that the Dorset branch of the Vintage Motor Cycle Club will be dropping in again for a few hours during our 2018 event and we have already provisionally spoken to Allan Gates at Mere Down Falconry who has 'pencilled' us in for a visit with his Birds of Prey. We are also aiming to have some more tractors on display and more stationary engines etc. in our 'Nostalgia' corner for 2018.

Planning for the 2018 route is well under way with a trial run already under our belt and we already have bookings for the road run and for the display only vehicles with a couple of 'bits and pieces' lined up for the Nostalgia Corner!
