Money raised for Macmillan by Car Rally

Over 3,500 people attended the annual Fraserburgh Vintage Car Rally in June this year and helped to raise more vital funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The annual Car Rally has been supporting Macmillan for 18 years and during that time has raised £16,000 for the charity. The event included a range of historic vehicles, a craft fair and an auto jumble for all the family. With over 500 exhibits, this year’s event was the largest in the rally’s 21 year history.

Rally Promoter, James Gray said: “We are very proud to be able to support Macmillan. The work they do is amazing, particularly the Macmillan Nurses who deliver such high standards of care with a real human touch. We know the difference they can make to people during very difficult times and are glad we can show our appreciation.”

Shirlie Geddes, Macmillan Fundraising Manager added: “We could not offer the much needed support to people affected by cancer throughout Aberdeenshire without events like the Fraserburgh Vintage Car Rally. Cancer is the toughest battle anyone will face and anyone going through cancer should have access to support during this time. The donations from James and Catherine Gray on behalf of the Fraserburgh Rally ensure that we can offer emotional, practical and financial support and we are incredibly grateful for the Fraserburgh Vintage Car Rally’s donations over the past 18 years.”
