Clonduff Vintage & Classic Car Club is thrilled to announce the overwhelming success of their Annual Charity Road Run, held on Easter Monday. The event, which took place in Hilltown, drew a crowd eager to watch the display and support three local charities: Air Ambulance NI, Life & Time and the NI Children’s Hospice.

This year’s road run proved to be another triumph for the club, as they raised an amazing £4,389, with each charity receiving a generous £1,200 donation. Club organisers expressed their delight and gratitude to everyone who contributed, including the drivers who bring along their tractors, cars and motorcycles year after year.

The club extends heartfelt thanks to John Farnon of Hilltown Farmers Attested Sales Ltd for generously providing their facilities again this year. Additionally, the dedication of the numerous volunteers who assisted, despite the soggy conditions, was crucial to the event’s success.

Amy Henshaw, Area Fundraising Manager for Air Ambulance NI, conveyed her sincere appreciation, saying, ‘A very big thank you to the club committee and every single person involved in the Clonduff Annual Road Run. Your local air ambulance is truly thankful to be included as a beneficiary for this year’s event, and it’s a very welcomed donation. Twice a day (on average), the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) team are tasked to severely ill or injured patients across NI, delivery potentially life-saving interventions. Your generous support will allow our medical team and helicopter to keeping flying to the next critical patient.’

The Clonduff Vintage & Classic Car Club is proud to continue its tradition of giving back to the community and looks forward to another successful event next year.
