* HAPPY EASTER RETRO FUNDRAISING SUPPORTERS *

We hope you and your loved one’s are keeping safe and well, I’m sure like us you are all itching to get out and about in your Retro vehicles again..

As many of you will be aware we had not planned to host a fundraising event this year, and with the current ‘no large gathering’s allowed’ there is sadly no immediate plan for us to be able to change this, however we wanted to get in touch to let you all know that we are working behind the scenes to come up with a new RETRO FUNDRAISING GATHERING to be held here in Somerset once the ban has been lifted.

We will of course welcome any sponsorship support to get the gathering off of the ground and we hope that your friends and family will be able to join us.

Let’s put smiles back on peoples faces whilst raising much needed funds for our chosen causes, YFW Bloodbikes & Musgrove Park Hospital.

Much love,
Retro Fundraising
