The 1st July saw our on duty advanced fleet bike rider Mark Horscroft accompanied by our CBB Fleet Manager John Penlerick, head for Tricky’s Redruth to meet members of the Duchy Capri Club. The club based in Cornwall is for enthusiasts of the Ford Capri and Classic Fords which meet each month.
We were kindly invited to attend a cheque presentation which had culminated from the Duchy Classic Ford Show which was held on the 19th May at Trevornick Holiday Park, Newquay. This classic Ford show sees over 140 classic Fords on display.
Our volunteers attended this on a fabulous day where the Cornish weather was on everyone’s side, where we showed off our BMW 1200 RTPs and met so many people and were given the opportunity to raise awareness of our free charity service to our hospitals and hospices.
The night of the presentation saw a backdrop of very impressive and much loved Ford Capri’s as our BMW 1200 RTP and our volunteers were invited to step forward to receive from Mark Roberts and other club members a phenomenal amount of £1,000.00
This is an incredible amount to receive and will do so much to keep our wheels turning and in turn improve patient care within Cornwall and bring that care closer to home.
A heartfelt thank you to everyone from Duchy Capri Club for all their hard work to produce a good show as always.
