Celtic TVRs raise cash for cancer charity

1

The TVR Car Club’s Celtic Gathering has been taking place for 12 years and rotates between Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland.

For 2012 it was Northen Ireland's turn to host and members travelled from as far away as Cork, the north of Scotland and North East England to take part from 9-11 March.

Cars on show included Chimaeras, Cerberas, Tuscans, more than one Sagarus (we can't decide what the plural should be!) and an S3000, plus a handful of non-TVRs such as a Jaguar, Mini GP and an orange Lamborghini.

The club held a raffle and an auction that raised £3350 for Marie Curie Cancer Care, the Belfast hospice of which is only a few miles from the hotel where the Celtic Gathering took place.

Alec Barclay, a member of the club’s Northern Ireland Region and who works for the charity, said: "While my connection to the charity was one reason for it being chosen, it was clear from the feedback I received that members also had personal motivations for supporting the choice and for being so generous across the weekend."

Marie Curie Nurse Kasia Patynowska visited the event on Saturday morning to see what all the fuss was about and enjoyed seeing everyone’s pride and joy.

There was also a charity car wash on Saturday morning which raised £250 for an African relief charity, Fields of Life.

Well done guys, I really must make it along one year as it is reckoned to be a brilliant weekend.

Good to see Paddy's car was there, however it is a 3000S turbo (the last of 13) not a S3000. And despite what it says in the C&SC guides, none of the 3000S (turbo or not) were ever fitted with overdrive.

Pedantic mode off.

Oliver.
