NEWS - REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED. AN AMAZING RESPONSE MEANS ALL 250 SACES FILLED WITHIN A WEEK!! THANK YOU!!
Welcome to the home of the Wallingford Vehicle Rally and Parade. 2016 will be our 12th event and 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, trials riding display, 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 over £11,000 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 once again limited to 250 spaces and is open to all vehicles from old to modern classics. Be aware that last year all spaces were booked within a month so please register as soon as you can. Clubs are more than welcome and we will park you up in a group so you can set up a small stand and flags if desired. This year we will be operating a colour coded wristband system to cut down the time for the parade to enter the Kinecroft. Details on this and how to register are on the REGISTRATION page. 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 should you register too late. 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!
