Blackmore Vale Revival is a great success

Blackmore Vale Revival is an annual classic vehicle and vintage show held at Henstridge Airfield on the Somerset/Dorset border.  

Visitors traditionally dressed in vintage clothing, enjoyed the range of 300 classic vehicles ranging from 1920’s racing cars to modern day classics. There were army vehicles, planes, kit cars, motorbikes and helicopter rides. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day for all the family with trade and craft stalls, family entertainment and more.

The day, organised by volunteers, raised funds for CLIC Sargent, The Youth Cancer Trust and the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance.

Ray Cable, chairman of the committee that organises the day, said: “We really enjoy organising this special day and it’s a pleasure to donate £1,000 to CLIC Sargent so that they can support children and young people with cancer.”

Nicci Judd, a local Dorset CLIC Sargent Representative attended the event raising another £100 for CLIC Sargent with a fantastic raffle and games.

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Liz Blunt said: “We really appreciate all the hard work carried out by Ray and the rest of the committee to make the Blackmore Vale Revival the great success it is.

"The money they have generously donated this year will pay for a family from Dorset or Somerset to stay a month in one of our Homes from Home, such as CLIC Haven in Southampton.

"The majority of young people with cancer from Dorset are treated at Southampton Hospital. It’s so important that families can be together so that’s why we provide a home for the family to stay in, to help with travel costs and so that they can spend more time with a loved one.  

"We wouldn’t have CLIC Haven without wonderful supporters such as Wendy and Ray Cable, Nicci Judd and the generosity of Geoff Jarvis, the owner of Henstridge Airfield."
