    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Long time Vintage Hot Rod Association member Brett unfortunately suffered a nasty accident whilst competing in his Ford model T at the Chateau Impney hillclimb over the weekend of 7th/8th of July. Both car and driver suffered significant damage with Brett set to have an extended stay at the NHS's pleasure. Not only is Brett an avid motor sport enthusiast but he has channelled that enthusiasm into helping others by organising his own charity events, under the banner of 'Miles for Smiles', that offer terminally ill patients and their families the chance to enjoy rides and trips in all manor of exotic and classic cars. It seems only right for a guy that has done so much for others to receive some help in these terrible circumstances so we are hoping to raise a sum of cash that Brett can use to aid both his and the cars recovery.

        You have to get the car up and racing again and having seen it every bit will help. Hope the recovery continues well.
