While we know youâ??ll be having a blast, proceeds from the day help very worthy causes and go towards supporting local charities and community projects in need of a helping hand. In the eighteen years our Steam and Classic Vehicle Rally has been running an impressive amount of money has been raised and it would make our day if this year the total exceeded last yearâ??s charity bounty of £15,000 Can we beat it? With your help we can!
