In its 25th year, the Little Gransden Air & Car Show delivered yet another spectacular event, in which all monies raised went to local charities and the BBC’s Children in Need appeal.
A total of £12,500 was raised during this year’s event at Little Gransden airfield, Cambs, with some 30 aircraft taking to the skies.
The tireless efforts of volunteers and the generosity of the supporting public throughout the many years the show has been run has seen an overall amount of £320,000 raised. Local charities to benefit from a share this year will receive a cheque for £500 and include:
Gamlingay Football Colts, Waresley Cricket Club, EACH (East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice), Gamlingay Rainbow Pre-school Playgroup, Barnabas Oley Primary School, Bridget Smith Trustee for Forward Gamlingay Youth Club, Great Gransden Playgroup, Gamlingay First School, and Frazer Allison a local fundraiser on behalf of Sue Ryder and St Johns charities.
