Gordon Bulmer Memorial Run by Sheila Mason - 10th July 2016


Report by John Gill

Gordonís Beloved MG

Firstly can I thank Stuart and Lucy for organising such a good run in memory of Stuartís farther Gordon, everyone enjoyed the day very much.

We all met at Thirsk Market Place, there were 15 cars and we left at 10.30. The run covered 91.3 miles over wonderful countryside through Leyburn, towards Richmond through Gilling West, Brompton on Swale, Scorton past Croft Race Track over Darlington road to the Chequers Inn ,Dalton-on -Tees, arriving at 2pm ready for an excellent lunch.

We had a collection towards our chosen charity -- Pancreatic Cancer in memory of Gordon, I am pleased to announce that we raised £117 which we will add to the final amount raise in September.

There was just one slight upset to the day, Tony's MG died 60 miles into the run, fortunately Ian was there to give us a push, we managed to arrive at the pub where it died again for good!! We enjoyed our lunch and then were rescued by the RAC and arrived home on a recovery lorry. The diagnosis was a faulty alternator, happy to report a new one arrived 2 days later and all fixed by the 15th!!

Thank you once again Stuart and Lucy.
