Thank You Greetham Gathering

On Thursday September 29th, the Greetham Gathering’s committee and helpers met Charlotte Marson from Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance service (DLRAA) at Colin Easson Motors in Cottesmore, Rutland, to present a cheque in support of DRLAA. In 2014, the first year of the Greetham Gatherings, the committee were able to present a cheque to the DRLAA for £450. In 2015 the donation was £1,500. 2016 has proven to be a much more challenging year (with some poor weather)  but also a more successful year for the Gatherings, and with all the extra support from the public, the committee were delighted to present a cheque for £2,000 to the air ambulance.

The Greetham Gathering is an informal get-together for enthusiasts of vintage and classic vehicles, and is held each third Thursday of the month from May to September. The Gatherings are held at Greetham Community Centre, Great Lane, Greetham, LE15 7NG, and all are welcome – with or without classic or vintage vehicles. Food and drinks are available, and we look forward to your continued support. Further details can be found at

Without the fabulous support from all the enthusiasts and members of the public who come to the Gatherings, this would not be possible. Their contribution to making the Gatherings a success is truly appreciated and we look forward to being able to further increase our donation to the DLRAA in 2017.
