A few weeks ago Nancy Crichton received an email from Bob Ward who was doing a charity fund raising trip to Scotland in his MG TD.
Starting from Leeds on September 21 he came up as far as the new Forth Bridge before meeting as arranged some Caledonian MG people at Queensferry and the Kelpies. His short trip ended back in Leeds on the 24th.
He was hoping to raise £500 for his favourite congenital heart charity
Tiny Tickers (http://www.tinytickers.org/) and the Centre has been pleased to help him towards his target.
Short Report by Helen and Tommy Arnott
The sun shone as 6 of us representing the Caledonian Centre of the MG Car Club, waited at the Kelpies to meet Bob Ward and Ian Wilson on the final stage of their round trip from Leeds to Edinburgh to raise awareness , and money for their Charity Tiny Tickers in Bob’s 1950’s TD
Unfortunately, despite our pleas, we weren’t allowed to take our cars up to the Kelpies so instead we enjoyed the walk in the sun and listened to some of the tales of their journey over coffee.
We then travelled in convoy to the Falkirk Wheel, from there Bob would travel on to Peebles before returning to Leeds and Ian would travel to Inverness to hire a car and ‘do’ the Route 500.
Bob and Ian had enjoyed their journey, meeting a variety of MG owners including James and Valerie Worsley from the Caledonian Centre at the Forth Bridges.
We hope they raised lots of money for a charity close to their hearts.
You can still do it in an MG!
Maybe we will get a wee report on Ian’s sojourn to Inverness and the Route 500 later (Ed)
