For the last eight years I’ve been helping out shooting images for a great charity called We See Hope, https://www.weseehope.org.uk/ They run a series of programs in Africa across five countries – Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania, Uganda and Zimbabwe to help children and each year fund raise with a classic car rally where supporters get to drive their dream car in return for a donation.
Generous owners lend their cars for the day and this year the line up was truly breathtaking from Lamborghinis, Porsches and Ferraris to Aston Martins and Jaguars. More than fifty classic and super cars were presented to their new owners for the day at the Great Fosters Tudor Estate in Egham, Surrey ,just outside London before heading off into the English countryside.
Drivers followed a route book though pretty villages and lanes with plenty of stops along the way including a visit for lunch to an English vineyard. At Hattingley valley, www.hattingleyvalley.com, there was wood-fired pizza and a chilled glass of British bubbles for the passengers and something soft for the drivers.
Over £400,000 was raised from this year’s event and the date is set for the 2024 rally.
