Welcome to the home of the Wallingford Vehicle Rally and Parade. 2015 will be our 11th event and it is shaping up to be the best yet. The Dorchester based Footsteps Foundation will once again be our principal charity, offering specialist intensive rehabilitation for children and young adults with neurological, neuro-motor, undiagnosed disorders, cerebral palsy, epilepsy and other genetic disorders since it was set up in 2003. Footsteps provide ground-breaking physiotherapy, where specialised physiotherapists design patient specific rehabilitation, therapeutic exercises and specialised equipment, to help patients achieve their full potential. A truly worthy cause, who will be working with us over the next few months to make the event a huge success once again.
For those who didn't make it to our show last year, we exceeded all expectations with a full to capacity parade of 250 cars, live music throughout the day, a wide variety of charities and displays and a selection of food traders. Thanks to them and your own generosity, we were able to raise £10,000 which was distributed not only to The Footsteps Foundation, but also another dozen or so local charities, including Wallingford Fire Service, The Treehouse School in Cholsey, Wallingford ATC, Cholsey Silver band to name just a few.
The parade is now full, the 250 spaces sold out in less than a month. Thank you to all those who have pre-registered for this event. However, we will secure an overflow car park once more so that you can still take part in the parade, just not the static show. Drop us an email via our contact page for more info. We can also put you on our mailing list and keep you informed of news and information as it happens, and while you're at it why not follow us on Facebook too! We now have a FlickR page where you will find all the photos from the previous events, simply point your web browser here
Feel free to get in touch if you are a local charity who would like to attend, or you'd simply like to give us a hand on the day or even join our committee of volunteers who work tirelessly throughout the year to make this event run as smoothly as possible.
More information on what's happening on the day will be posted nearer the time.
Thank you once again for all your support and we hope to see you soon!
As part of the Car Rally The Treehouse School is holding a Massive Secondhand Bike Sale. There will be adult and childrens bikes, scooters, helmets, tag-a-longs, child seats etc. So come along and grab a bargain. If you have any of these items that you would like to sell then please bring them along to the Kinecroft between 10.30 and 11.00am, fill in a label with your details and a price. Come back at 4.00pm and collect either 75% of your bikes selling price, or your bike if it hasn't sold.
The Treehouse School is also accepting donations of unwanted bikes, or bikes that need a little TLC. If you have any questions please call Sally on 07837 009774
