A Glasgow car club is participating in a fundraising event for charity.

Glasgow Moggies is taking part in Drive It Day, organised by the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Club (FBHVC).

The event raises money towards the NSPCC’s free counselling service for children and young people, Childline.

Members of the club will drive their antique vehicles from Newton Mearns to Prestwick Beach, which is a 45 to 60-minute journey.

John Emley, founder of Glasgow Moggies, said: “I am incredibly excited to be involved in this year’s Drive It Day. It’s always a great event – especially for those of us who love motorsports and vintage cars.

“We are proud to be supporting NSPCC Scotland and Childline to help raise funds to support young people in our community.”

Caroline Renton, NSPCC supporter fundraising manager for Scotland, said: “Last year, Drive it Day across the UK raised £47,000 for Childline, our free counselling service for children and young people, through club support and Rally Plate sales.

“We are delighted that the FBHVC are supporting us again this year, and hope that the partnership continues to grow.

“It is sure to be a fantastic day so I would encourage everyone to get involved.”

National Drive It Day was created by the FBHVC in 2005 as a chance for historic vehicle enthusiasts and the public to celebrate the One Thousand Mile Trial, which was originally organised in 1900 to prove the viability of then-new motor vehicles.

It is also a chance to raise awareness and support amongst the public for the historic vehicle movement and keeping transport heritage on UK roads.

Members of the public will also have an opportunity to donate to Childline on the day via QR codes displayed on the vehicles. For more information, visit here.
