This Sunday we are sponsoring the Mendip and Classic tour, organised by
the Classic and Historic Motor Club which raises money for the Dorset
and Somerset Air Ambulance. This service does not receive any government
funding but is there to help us all in times of medical emergency,
attending up to 8 or 9 incidents a day in the summer. The beauty of this
service is that they can be at any incident in the two counties within
20 minutes then can take patients to any one of the trauma centres
within another 20 minutes.
Over 160 cars will be taking part, ranging in age from 1911 to 1997, ambling through Somerset with a lunch at the Fleet Air Arm Museum then arriving on Wells Cathedral Green from 2.30pm. The weather is expected to be good so bring the family for an afternoon of seeing some spectacular vehicles and supporting a great cause!
