Dear All

As a lot of you may know we had a ‘Bacon Butty’ morning in March of this year at Trinity Engineering and opened our doors to Pistonheads contributors to come and see what we do servicing and restoring primarily with the older Aston Martins from 1950’s-1990’s. It was a great day and we really enjoyed having everyone here.

As a company every year we organise an event to raise money for Headley Court which is based in Surrey near Leatherhead and is the rehabilitation centre for injured and wounded soldiers coming back from conflicts. The guys and girls are generally in quite a bad way when they are first admitted and having spoken to many servicemen and women who have benefited from being there, Headley Court really does piece them back together and not just physically.

Last year with a family open day here at Trinity and contributions from customers and AMOC members alike we managed to raise £9,600 which was enough money to fund a special assessment unit and tranquillity garden within the Hospital for when soldiers are first admitted and the realisation of their injuries hits home.

This year we are going to have another ‘Bacon Butty’ morning on Saturday the 20th October but this time there will be an entry charge of £10 for adults and £5 for children under 10 years old. All of the money raised will be going directly to Headley Court to purchase Ipads for the brain injured. At Headley Court they have seen marked improvements in brain activity from the stimulation generated by certain apps and we are hoping to raise as much money as possible to purchase as many Ipads as contributions allow.

The event will be notified to AMOC members, customers and across various forums and we would like to see as many people as possible here to support a very worthwhile cause. Last year we had 285 people attend the open day but the one target I would like to achieve is 100 cars in attendance. It would be a fantastic sight and one worthy of getting the local press involved. If you would like to come along please email Anne my office manager at anne@trinityastonmartin.co.uk to confirm how many in your party will be attending. This will enable us to cater accordingly.

Thanks everyone and I hope you will be able to come.

We are up to fifty odd people coming now so its getting there. I am sure there are a few more of you that would like to come though?

We are trying to get some of the lads from Headley Court to come down so if anyone wants to take them out in a car it would make it a real experience them. It would be something few of them would ever get the opportunity to do.

Well done Tim what a great cause to support.
What sort of timetable is the day running to? Its a shame it clashes with the OopNorth run but - all depends on timing - I may have a run down then back up so to speak.

That's my plan Tony - nip down (only from Putney mind) for a bacon sarnie and a discussion with Tim about a project (;)) and then head oop narth. Convoy?

We plan to start at around 9.30am and I imagine most people will stay until around 1.00pm. That will give everyone a chance for a Butty cooked by Mrs B, a coffee and a look at whats in the workshop.

You don't have to be an Aston owner to turn up, just a car nut!

Hi Marcel

We have you on the list so worries there.

Anne is sinking under AMOC/Trinity stuff at the moment as we are organising another three events at the same time.

Count me in too - I was going to do the up north run, but don't think I can spare the time, so this should fill a gap smile
