Between 8am and 9.30am on Sunday 17th May one hundred Classic Cars will gather at St. Marys School for a bacon butty before setting off for a fascinating 70 mile run through the beautiful Wiltshire countryside. Stopping for refreshments at Middlewick House and then onto Casterley Barn near Pewsey to finish with a wonderful lunch provided by the Marden Belles WI with time to enjoy the beautiful views over the downs.
With further support on the day being provided by Rotarians and a great team of volunteers, the event will be a true community effort. The car run also features VIP Teddy Bears and much loved dogs in some of the cars.
Most of the proceeds will go to the Wiltshire Bobby Van Trust and the remainder to Rotary charities
The event still has place available for classic and cherished cars and Kate Tompkins of the Rotary Club of Calne said “If you have a classic car, bike or other vehicle come and join us for a great day out and to raise money for some great causes”

We were delighted that our Covert Camera Team were nominated for the South West Region Special Constabulary and Police Support Volunteers awards. The Trust couldn’t carry out this vital service without their hard work and effort and it was only right that this was recognised. Thank you to Matt, David, John and Neil, you are very special volunteers.
At a recent meeting Haydon Wick Parish Council kindly gave the Bobby Van a donation of £300. We are so grateful to them for their continued support. The highly professional service we provide is only possible due to the support of Town and Parish Councils, charitable trusts and the generosity of individuals, so many thanks to one and all.
Sally Raubenheimer from The Wiltshire Bobby Van Trust enjoyed meeting customers at the Coventry Building Society in Melksham on 10th October to promote both of our home security and stay safe online services. There was a steady flow of people all day and lots of leaflets and advice was handed out. Many thanks to Natasha and her team for organising the day and making us feel most welcome.
Many thanks to everyone involved in making the Devizes Autumn Fair such a success. From our sponsors, Gaigers and JS Weeks & Co to all our volunteers, stall holders and supporters, who came to enjoy a fun shopping experience, thank you so much. A special mention to Peter Vaughan who produced some delicious canapes for our preveiw evening on Monday night and then ran a cafe upstairs on the Tuesday. Thank you Peter.
A fabulous £9,000 was made for not only the Bobby Van but also Dorothy House, Prospect Hospice, Salisbury Hospice and Cancer Research UK. This was a case of one community coming together to support some amazing local charities. Well done to all.
