Car show gets into gear for HRCC

Bundle O'Dubz

Bundle O’ Dubz – the family friendly Volkswagen show – once again supported HRCC recently.

This annual event – predominantly aimed at VW and VAG owners – had relocated to South Woodham Ferrers Country Park, and over the weekend of 8-10 August 2016, raised a whopping £2,000 for our Charity.

“We started the show in 2014, and our primary aim is to put on a great show with a relaxed vibe,” says Kieron Davey and his fellow organisers.

“We cater for anyone with an interest in dubs, cars, vans and pretty much anything with an engine. We also ensure we cover the whole spectrum of visitors, from the single day visitor to clubs and families.

“As a weekend show, camping is an integral part of what we do. We have set areas for clubs, and also spots for quiet camping. As with any car show, it’s all about the vehicles. We aim to bring together all the elements of the VW scene, whether it be air, water-cooled, old, modern, small, large, dub or non-dub! We love them all and love bringing like-minded people together to have a great time, and raise money for Helen Rollason Cancer Charity at the same time.”

HRCC’s Grants and Corporate Sponsorship Manager,Angela Lodge, was delighted to receive the cheque at a recent presentation: “A huge thank you to everyone involved in Bundle O’Dubz for their continued support of Helen Rollason Cancer Charity. With such a fantastic amount of money will be able to support so many people living with cancer. Without kind-hearted supporters such as yourselves, our Charity would not be able to continue its great work.”

The date has already been set for Bundle O’Dubz next year – 7-9 July, 2017. for more information visit www.vwbod.co.uk.
