Fellow RV8 member, Charles Peers, says "On this rally on Sunday 19th May 2019, we drive our tractors on a route to and from a field in Fingest, (½ mile up the road from the Chequers pub), on a route of some 23 miles over all terrains through woods, across fields, and rough tracks, in all weathers without any protection, only natural air conditioning. We also have to drive some 20 miles to and from the site making a total of up to 63 miles. Anyone is welcome to come to the start and finish field, where the local vicar blesses all the tractors, before we leave at 9:30am, we are then scheduled to return about 4pm, or you can join us for a barbeque lunch at Fawley Hill Railway station by kind permission of Lady McAlpine at approximately 1.00pm. We are prepared to make this sacrifice in aid of the above very worthy charity, which for us in rural areas is a valuable asset, but as many of will realize it relies entirely on donations and sponsorships for its income so we are asking for any contributions to help us on the way to raise some meaningful funds for the Thames Valley Air Ambulance (TVAA)".

Charles adds "I am after your hard earned money or savings to support me and my son Tom by sponsoring us to raise funds for the Thames Valley Air Ambulance. I am sure you are all aware that they are a charity, and rely entirely on public donations, events such as ours, and general fund raising to keep running. Over the last ten years this organisation has raised over £48,000, and this average is increasing year on year. Tom and I between us made over £1,000 last year thanks to all those of you who supported us most generously, please help us do the same again this year.

I have set up a Just Giving page so please use this if it is simpler for you but whatever don’t forget!"
