Upcoming Events for the Next 14 Day(s)
"On Your Marks" - Whats it all about.
On Sunday the 2nd of August 2009 at Bruntingthorpe we are holding a major charity event called "on your marks", and we are inviting you to come along to this extraordinary private transport related event, as we have about 10,000 visitors there on the day.
You are probably wondering what its all about, well six years ago we had a driver named Mark Hickenbottom who sadly died of lymphatic cancer. We decided to try and make his family some money and put the show together in two weeks. After the event we proudly handed over a cheque to his family for £7,500.
The car clubs that came on the day asked if we could do it again next year, and it was decided we would raise money for children's related cancer charities.
The fact is, on your marks has got bigger year on year ,and is Bruntingthorpe's event of the year with 10,000 people or more and most of them are families having the day of there lives'. Some of them fulfilling life long dreams and wishes.
To give you an idea of how big "on-your-marks" is now, six years ago we ordered 250meters of safety fencing; this year Chris and I have just ordered nearly 4 kilometers of metal safety fencing.
A great deal of companies help us to put on this incredible day and Asda, Asda George , Clarins, Scania, Volvo , Jungheinrich, Chubb, The Core of Commissionaires, Tyre Services UK Leeds ltd, Optima cone services, Ford , Continental tyres, StreetLife TV and Jeff Fowkes Wheels are but a few. The bonus for these companies is that all their employees can come along on the day (£5 per car) and spend their money on the attractions below. We have so far given about £70,000 away to the kids since we started this crazy idea six years ago.
Last year raised over £27,000 alone, with plans to beat that total this year.
