Over 50 classic minis were on show today at Ipswich Waterfront after taking part in a Suffolk landmark ‘treasure hunt’ for Fresh Start – New Beginnings, a child sexual abuse charity.
The Ipswich and Suffolk Mini Owners Club (ISMOC) organised the ‘Classics on the Quay’ event.
The run started out at Stonham Barns at 10am where participants were given riddles to identify 10 Suffolk landmarks. They then travelled to as landmarks as possible, and take a photo of each one, before finishing outside Cult Cafe along Ipswich Waterfront at 1pm.
ISMOC founder Carl George said: “This is our first-ever mini run and we wanted to have fun and support a local charity where our donation will help make a difference.
“Once I heard about Fresh Start – New Beginnings and the fantastic work they do, we had no hesitation on deciding to raise money for them. They are small like us, but they really do make a big difference to the 200 sexually abused children they work with.”
Patsy Johnson- Cisse, fundraising manager at Fresh Start – New Beginnings, said: “We are over the moon that Carl and the members of Ipswich and Suffolk Mini Owners club are supporting us.
“We are a small local children’s charity supporting children who have been sexually abused and having Carl and the mini club supporting us, raising awareness of the work we do, and raising money, will help us make a difference.”
Winner of ‘Best Mini’ on the day went to Danni Cook’s beautiful and vibrant ‘Nemo’.
Finished in Focus ST Electric Orange.
