In Loving Memory of my Dad, Brian Maeers.
THE BEST DAD IN THE WORLD!
Shockingly, Dad died of cancer December 19th 2013. Only eight weeks warning/ diagnosis. Then, my adorable Dad was gone...
Dad left one of his many beloved Morris Minors, Prudence, to me.
Prudence, Phil & I will support Macmillian as they supported us when Dad was so poorly.
Many 1920/30's Morris Minors are taking to the road between 1st April & 31st May 2015 to raise money for Macmillan. They will travel ''Around The Edge'' of England. These strong little 'Minors' are over 80 years old and, like many people, (sadly young or old), need our support, love & care ...
Please support Macmillan. Also, remember to look out for those little 'Minors' on their fund raising drives Around The Edge!
We are off to The Isle of Wight......
See below for our planned 'fund raising' tour.
