Fundraiser follow-up brings motoring community together, for NHS show of support
As we slipped indistinguishably from a constrained Christmas to what felt like the longest January on record, the historic motoring community remained in isolation at home, for the protection of ourselves, the vulnerable and those working in the NHS.
Following the success of two events in 2020 and an RAC Historic Award, Classics for Carers is back for 2021! The March event is focused on NHS well-being and mental health, aiming to raise £13,000, which would provide an NHS well-being pod — a quiet restorative space for staff.
The National Stay At Home Motor Show is once again inviting classic car and bike enthusiasts, clubs and businesses to exhibit a nation-wide show of appreciation for NHS carers and their sustained effort over what is now a year of living with the coronavirus pandemic.
Commenting on the event’s return, organiser Nick Chivers said:“In May and June of last year, we hosted two charity at-home motor shows, raising £17,500 for NHS Charities Together, providing much needed resources for NHS staff. Numerous mini motor shows on people’s driveways gave classic car and bike enthusiasts a chance to put their passion on show and fundraise for a national cause. We are honoured to have been voted 2020 winner of a Royal Automobile Club Historic Award, in the category of Motoring Spectacle. A true testament to everyone who supported the events of 2020.”
