Lord Montagu will be waving off a festive convoy of over 100 VWs on Sunday 2nd December as they set off from Beaulieu to deliver Christmas presents to youngsters at the Piam Brown unit at Southampton General Hospital.
Scores of brightly coloured VW campers and cars will start their journey as Lord Montagu waves the chequered flag to start the New Forest VW Santa Run in the grounds of the National Motor Museum.
Laden with gifts from kind donations, drivers will be accompanied by motorcycle outriders as they head to the unit for children and teenagers with cancer and haematological disorders. In the fifth annual charity run convoy, they will take presents for youngsters as well as the hospital doctors and nurses.
Event organiser Phill Ashby said: “We are very excited about this year’s Santa Run and really looking forward to another great day. With increasing numbers each year, we are expecting at least as many VWs as last year and, as always, the decorations get more creative every year.”
VW drivers will get into the Christmas spirit by decorating their vehicles and themselves in festive attire, with Lord Montagu presenting prizes to the best-dressed van and best-dressed family. Look out for Rudolf, elves and even Father Christmas!
