We are creating a new show, a #VirtualMotorShow on Sunday’s between 2-6pm on social media to help as a fundraiser to the NHS and independent events all caught up due to Coronavirus.
Whilst walking the dog, I was pondering the strange world we are in right now. How can we
a) Support independent events that aren’t under the protection of the ‘Arts Council’ funding and the businesses and families behind all of that.
b) What a hell of a job the people of the NHS are doing right now. Granted the latter is always true but not sure its been tested quite like this for some time due to the Coronavirus.
I was also looking forward to the Restoration Show this week and the lockdown meant the show didn’t happen. An understandable shame (and great to see it back for August).
As a natural problem solver, my mind quickly came up with how could we create a ‘virtual motor show’? With all the amazing community of motoring enthusiasts we could try! Then it was, could we raise money as we do it?
Well, we’re trying!. There is a fundraising page on ROCCR.COM asking for small donations to raise money that can go to both causes.
We will be online between 2-6pm on Sunday 5th April, and maybe every Sunday during this lockdown. We want fans and motoring enthusiasts to post photos, share videos of their pride and joy’s using #VirtualMotorShow on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
I think it is quite a nice way to share the passion I hope and maybe raise a bit of money to support those in need right now.
I am looking forward to a bumper summer of events (fingers crossed) but for now, I hope you can join in. It would be great to see you. If its a Classic Car, modified, classic motorbike, sports car, hyper-car or truck, share your pride and joy with us. Go online and enjoy a bit of a motoring fix and raise a bit of money at the same time.
