Mini fans don pink rib­bons for Som­er­set cruise

Mini Magazine - - News -

Minis from all over the West Coun­try took to the roads of Som­er­set to raise money for The Neu­rob­las­toma So­ci­ety in mem­ory of Amelia Rose Price, who died aged just four on March 17 2007. The event took place on March 20, and was or­gan­ised by her grandad, Phil Reeves, and her Aun­tie, Han­nah Reeves, who are both mem­bers of the Avon Val­ley Clas­sic Mini Club.

Tak­ing place for the fifth time, this year’s event saw a record 38 Minis gather at the Trav­eller’s Rest pub in Pens­fold for breakfast and the start point of the run. Par­tic­i­pants were en­cour­aged to wear pink, Amelia’s favourite colour, and pink rib­bons were pro­vided as part of the run packs. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives were present from Moles Mini Club, Juras­sic Coast Minis and Bris­tol Mini Drifters, as well as a healthy num­ber of in­di­vid­ual en­tries.

The route took in some of Amelia’s favourite places, with run­ners briefly stop­ping off at Chew Val­ley Lake to feed the lucks be­fore head­ing down the fa­mous twisty road into Ched­dar Gorge. The run cul­mi­nated at Brean Down cafe, where the Minis packed out the over­flow car park. The club man­aged to raise £380 to go to­wards the chil­dren’s can­cer char­ity, pro­vid­ing an im­pres­sive end to a mem­o­rable day.
