Raising Money for NSPCC, with a Classic Car Show at Waterfield House Care Home

Runwood Homes care home Waterfield House in Hadleigh, hosted a classic car show in the heart of the community, whilst raising funds for the NSPCC.

Residents, staff, families and the community enjoyed a day of refreshments, raffles and an array of classic cars.

On display at this year’s car show was a 1974 Triumph Spitfire, a TVR, a 1953 MGTD, a Wolseley 1955 model and a VW Beetle.

In total, the home collectively raised £117 for the charity.

Brian W, Resident at Waterfield House, said:
“I used to drive a blue VW Beetle like the one that is here, it was the most uncomfortable car I drove. It has brought back some memories of it always breaking down at the most inconvenient times”.

Resident, Alex, at Waterfield House, was particularly fond of the Black Wolseley, recalling many fond memories:
“I used to have a Black Wolseley, a different model to this one. This Model was used as a police car, I remember the sirens chasing me very well.”

Customer Relations Manager, Lindsey Fletcher, said: “We were thrilled to see so many fantastic cars on display at Waterfield House care home. For some of the residents at the home, the cars brought back many memories from their youth, and for others, it was their first time seeing the cars in person. We want to thank the community and the team at Waterfield House for coming together to make this such a special day, whilst raising money for a fantastic cause.”
