Classic Christmas Collection for Mountbatten Presentation

Jan 8, 2022

VHVC LTD Supporting Mountbatten

The Vectis Historic Vehicle Club Ltd were very pleased to make the donation to Mountbatten’s CEO Nigel Hartley. On presenting the cheque for £1000 Chairman Geoff Dean said that members of the Club all recognise the great work that Mountbatten do for our Island community in end of life care as well as other health support categories. The £1000 was principally collected by 25 keen members in Christmas themed fancy dress, with their cars in St Thomas Square Newport just before Christmas. Nigel thanked the members attending the presentation for the continued support of the Club, which has contributed many thousands of pounds over the years. Classic vehicles at the presentation were Joe Kitney Aston Martin, Bill & Vickie Rasmussen MGA, John & June Bryant Daimler SP 250, Chris & Jenny Belford VW Beetle and Steve & Lil Downey with the very distinctive VW Pink and Blue Camper “Nellie”.

Peter Hodgson – Club President said, that the VHVC Ltd club members were very pleased to make this collection for a charity which has given care to so many people on the Island, but still requires constant funding to carry on with that care in the future. Particularly in recent times when the pandemic has curtailed so many fund raising events.
