BALA and District Motor Club has continued to raise money for the North Wales Air Ambulance.

Members of the club visited the North Wales Air Ambulance base in Welshpool last Saturday.

They were there to present their latest cheque to the air ambulance, which was for £5,300.

This takes the amount raised by the club for the cause to an amazing £10,300 over the last two years.

The money was raised on the club's annual motorsport events this year.

The Polyroof PK Memorial Road Rally saw all spectator car parking money being donated.

This was also the case at the Quarry Explorer Rali Cwm Cynfal, with £10 of each rally entry also being donated.

Through the generosity of Michael Bewick and his team at Llechwedd Quarry, all spectator fees for a trip to the tests at the quarry in their Quarry Explorer vehicles were donated.

At the The Minafon Garage Gareth Hall Memorial Rally, again all spectator parking money was donated.

This was together with money raised in the auction for the opportunity to navigate former works driver Geoff Jones on the event in a car from the Geoff Jones Motorsport stable.

This raised £450 for this cause and £450 for the MS UK charity.

A generous donation of £400 was also made by last year’s winner Dave Paveley, of North Wales Honda, Llandudno, together with a further donation by Nia Roberts catering.

The final amount of £2,800 towards the total was raised at the club’s recent 70th anniversary party auction, where everyone dug deep for the charity.

A spokesman for the club said: “It’s been good to raise money for this worthwhile charity once more this year.

"Being a rural club, we understand how this facility is often the difference in life or death situations in rural communities and it is a pleasure to hand over more funds to try and help this cause."

Bala and District Motor Club would like to thank all competitors, spectators, the general public and officials who have given so generously over the year.

Thanks also go to Michael Bewick and his team at Llechwedd Quarry, Geoff Jones at Geoff Jones Motorsport, Dave Paveley at North Wales Honda and Nia Roberts Catering.
