Welcome to the website of the Rotary Club of Wadebridge
As the Royal Cornwall Show (5, 6 & 7 June) starts to set up at the Showground, Wadebridge Rotary Club are once again gearing up their resources for the South-West’s premier Classic Vehicle Rally “Wheels 2013” which is due to take place on Sunday 14 July at the same fantastic venue.
Registrations are well underway now and it is expected that around 600 plus exhibitors and their vehicles (including vintage, veteran and classic cars, motor cycles, tractors, commercial vehicles along with stationery engines and Steam) will be there on the day. If you have not yet got around to registering for this great event, then you can find out all the detail you need and make your registration online by visiting the dedicated web site: http://www.wadebridgewheels.co.uk
Wadebridge Rotary Club are, as always, planning a great day out for all the family and this year the primary beneficiary from any nett proceeds will be the Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust (with additional sums going to Riding for the Disabled Cornwall and The Friends of Bodmin Hospital). For over 25 years the Cornwall Air Ambulance has been providing a vital helicopter emergency service to the community of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, flying 365 days a year and attending an average of 3 – 4 emergency missions every single day.

All of this links neatly with a regular Wheels Exhibitor, namely Mary Phillips. You may recall that, last summer, Mary drove her 1953 Field Marshall Series 3A Tractor from John O’Groats to Lands End raising some £15,000 for Cornwall & Devon Air Ambulance Trusts – quite an achievement especially when Mary’s speed of 9 mph is taken into account (how frustrating must that have been for other road users over 987 miles!).
On 30 June 2013, Mary is to attempt another heroic journey, this time just to ring the changes, from Lands End to John O’Groats! And once more, Mary aims to raise funds for both Cornwall & Devon Air Ambulance Trusts. If you would like to see Mary off on our journey then you should be at Lands End around midday and if, more importantly, you would like to show your support for ‘woman extraordinaire’ Mary Phillips, then do make a donation at: www.justgiving.com/maryphillipstractordrive
