The Wisbech and District Historic Vehicle Club (WDHVC) has presented £800 to local good causes.

The club, supported by Elgood’s Brewery, shared the money between good causes selected by club members.

Members of the club selected the local branch of Macmillan Cancer Support, the Fenland and West Norfolk Aviation Museum, East Anglian Air Ambulance and Manea Pre-school.

Each charity received £200, presented at the club’s recent presentation evening.

The money was raised through the club’s annual Road Run event, in August, which this year saw over 200 vehicles, from lorries to motorbikes, take part in the 80 mile run.

Roger Salter, club chairman, said: “As a club we are delighted to be able to give a little back to the local community.”

The club meets on the first Monday of every month at Wisbech Town Football Club, Lynn Road, Wisbech PE14 7AL. Meetings start at around 8pm.
