Classic Car Rally to Highclere Castle

A procession of classic cars wound its way through north Hampshire to the beautiful grounds of Highclere Castle in memory of local farmer Geoff Saunders – and the event pulled in thousands of pounds for Ark Cancer Centre Charity.

Geoff, a popular farmer from Baughurst and Bentley enthusiast, was a staunch supporter of the charity up until his death in May 2013. He provided one of the Charity’s first donations - a very generous £12,500. After he passed away, his family picked up the fundraising baton.
