As the Wycombe Area MG Owners Club (WAMGOC) Charity of the Year for 2016, Parkinson’s UK Amersham & High Wycombe Branch was presented with a cheque for £1,500 at the club AGM on Wednesday 2nd November 2016. This brought WAMGOC’s donations to the branch up to £1,820 for the year.
Our branch chairman, Trevor Owen, was there to receive the cheque on our behalf from club chairman Keith Darbon. Trevor said: “We are hugely grateful to the committee and members of the Wycombe Area MG Owners Club for their kind support and generosity. We are entirely dependent on local donations and fundraising for what we do and this donation will make a big difference”.
The funds raised by the club were generated through a number of events during 2016 including the annual Octagonal Run held in August and an auction for a commemorative MG watch at a recent WAMGOC members meeting.
Many thanks to all WAMGOC members for their generosity and to those who organised the fundraising events so well.
