Melbourn Snowdrop Run

Great Turnout for Charitable Car Run

Well over a hundred classic cars emerged on Melbourn Village College at the weekend to support this year’s Snowdrop Run.

The event was the 14th such meet up , which kick starts the season for the Cambridge and District MG Owners Club. This year the 60 mile route took the owners, who came from far and wide, with furthest participants from Lancashire, across Essex and Suffolk, culminating at the picturesque Chippenham Park Gardens in Cambridgeshire.

The occurence was initially held in its current form in 2006, after what started as a one off only meet up the previous year turned out to be a great success.

Not only were there representatives from the original MG’s spanning more than 70 years of British Motoring history, but also a number of their counterparts, and several participants from other manufacturers. Each member receives a plaque, and a pot of Snowdrops.

The event raises money for the Cherryhomes Trust, which assists people with severe physical disabilities in the district to maintain their personal independence.
