VW Action 2008
2008-06-18 09:48:00
VW Action 2008 will be the 5th anniversary of Brads cancer Foundation. It all started at VW Action 2003 where Brian Burrows, Brett Hawkesbury and their team gave Brad, family and friends their total support and allowed us to start our fundraising efforts.

Over the last 5 years we have had fantastic support from the Action Familly, many other shows, VW traders, 'VW celebrities' (yes you Jenson D Groover) and everyone that attends as well, helping us to raise thousands of pounds.

We want to thank you all for your continued support and for the friendships that have been made and the good times we have had.

Unfortunately VW Action 2003 was the last show Brad was able to attend. His highlight of the evening joining Jenson on stage, and dancing through the night.

This year the VW Action team are raising the bar with the following plans already in place:

VW ACTION CHARITY AUCTION
In aid of Brad's Cancer Foundation

http://www.vwaction.com/vwaction/auction.php

The regular VW Action Auction has raised many thousands of pounds for charity over the years, thanks in large part to the generosity of everyone providing items to be auctioned. We hope that this year is another memorable one.

Certainly the generosity of many of the VW Action traders cannot be faulted, as the quality of the items offered are always exceptional. Whilst there are always bargains to be had, we would also like to salute the generosity of many bidders each year who for some items pay 'over the odds' because it is for such a good cause.

We don't usually make a song and dance about it, you'll never see a picture of Brian or Brett with a 'big cheque', but did you know that the VW Action Auction often raises over a thousand pounds in around one hour?

The VW ACTION CHARITY AUCTION will also be where the winning ticket for the Brad's Cancer Foundation Karmann Ghia will be drawn. Please bring your ticket(s) with you.

Most lots will be donated (by the kind VW Action Traders) on the day but here's a few lots that will definitely be up for grabs on/in MAIN STAGE/MARQUEE SUNDAY 1.00pm:
