M.G. Owners Run Raises Funds for Solent Dolphin
John Bloomfield took part in, and reports on, a M.G. Run in the New Forest on 4 June 2016 which raised funds for Solent Dolphin and Simon Says.
John Bloomfield reports:-
"On Sunday June 5th the Southampton M.G. Car Club organised a 100 mile Run through the New Forest. There were over 150 M.G.s [from all over the country] and 1 Mercedes! Why? The M.G. Car Club nominated 2 charities, one of which was the Solent Dolphin (the 'Alison McGregor')
Solent Dolphin nominated me to respond and, I gave a short talk at their evening meeting and also joined in the Skittles the previous evening and helped on the day. I was also allowed to join in the Run in my Mercedes.
The event was held in glorious sunshine and the route was just lovely and incredibly well organised. A day to remember.
An incredible coincidence is that Fiona, who runs their website sailed with the late Alison MacGregor and knew her well. Fiona said she was a truly lovely person. Fiona is coming out on the “Alison MacGregor” next Tuesday evening.
The participants in the Run raised some £3,000 of which “Solent Dolphin” will receive half."
