Attached is the acknowledgement letter from St Barnabas Hospice thanking us for the £130 donation from the Chris Smith memorial 12 car held on 9th January.
For our newer members Chris Smith was one of our rallying members, a 12 car organiser and a Clerk of the course for our all night road rally, “The Hartford Motors Barnard Rally” when he deposited a Hartford Sierra course car in a dyke near Salmonby, on a road we often now use on the “Bruce”.
At a relatively young age Chris had to spend his final days in St Barnabas Hospice and his family and friends donated a Trophy to the Club in his memory. The first event in 1992 was organised by his very good friends Phil Hancock and Gary Dixon and with a full entry raised £140 for the charity.
The 2019 event with 9 entries raised £130 in its 27th year and so far we have raised £1,890.00 for St Barnabas in memory of Chris. Some of us somewhat older members were involved with the 1992 event and are still currently out in 2019, so thank you one and all for supporting whether your involvement has been for 1 or for 27 years, either by organising to keep it going, or marshalling to help on the night or competing, all in his memory.
