SHERBORNE Classic Car Show has donated £3,000 to support the Children’s Air Ambulance (TCAA), as the charity celebrates 10 years of vital service.

The car show took place in the summer at Sherborne Castle with more than 2,000 cars on show alongside trade stands, catering, and entertainment for the whole family to enjoy.

The show also aimed to raise funds to support numerous charities across the southwest of the UK.

Charities are able to apply for a grant from the Sherborne Car Show and the Children’s Air Ambulance was one of a number of worthy charities that received this grant. 

The total amount distributed between the charities was an amazing £55,000.

The grants were put in place to be able to provide benefits for deserving charities located in and near the Sherborne area.

The cheque presentation took place in October 2023 at Sherborne’s Digby Memorial Hall, where the children’s charity was presented with a cheque for £3,000 to help keep the charity flying vital transfer missions.

Sherborne Classic Cars Trustee, Olivia Sugg said: “We are extremely delighted to be supporting the Children’s Air Ambulance for the second year in a row.

"We feel proud to say that we are able to help them to save the lives of critically ill babies and children - with highly specialist equipment and expert paediatric practitioners onboard, which gives them the best chance of survival.

“The support of local businesses and communities is paramount to the charity continuing their vital missions. We hope we never need to use them but feel comfort knowing that they would be available if we ever needed them.” 

Fiona Franklin, TCAA Community Fundraising Executive, said: "On behalf of the charity, I would like to thank Sherborne Car Show for their generous grant to us for the second year running.”

The charity is celebrating its 10th anniversary of providing lifesaving high-speed transfers for critically ill babies and children in 2023.
