Regional News; Grampian raises £2,500 for Archie Foundation in Scotland

This weekend saw Grampian's Annual Gathering and Car Show return to Drum Castle. Even though the weather intially looked like it was going to threaten the even over 80 vehicles turned up to take part in the display on the castle’s south lawn.

Jim Mann, the Grampian regional chairman of the JEC said: “The popularity of the club’s annual event continues to increase each year.

Cars from every era were present. This include some incredible replica's, XK's and not one, but two Project 8's. During the day guests were able to walk amongst the cars, talk to their owners and generally find out more about the brand.

Live entertainment was provided by a superb local Scottish Marching band, who really added a great atmosphere to the day's proceedings.

As soon as the event opened, those attending were also encourage to purchase raffle tickets both for Grampian's regional Charity, The Archie Foundation, and the National Raffle for this year's F-Type Coupe.

Regional Chair Jim Mann said "During the 19-year history of our annual gathering, we have welcomed thousands of passionate Jaguar and Daimler car owners and interested spectators who enjoy seeing the best of the north-east’s cars all together and on show, however we are really grateful to all our sponsors for the support they have shown both the club, and our chosen charity"

Overall the region will shortly be handing over £2,500 to the Archie Foundation. The Charity actively works to support children when they are in hospital or need long term medical treatment. For more information on their work please click here.

The show will again return in 2020, and will take place on the last Sunday of July.
