RAISING MONEY FOR CHARITY / THE SOUTH’S PREMIER VW, CLASSIC & CUSTOM CAR SHOW
Now in it’s 15th year, the immensely popular car show Beach Buggin’ is back once again on Southsea Common with hundreds of vehicles on show and all manner of classic and custom attractions.
The whole show is free to walk around and take a close look at some of the finest examples of VW, Classic and Custom Cars in the UK. The main attraction is the ‘Concourse Show & Shine Competition’ where the best of the best will be on show and competing to win ‘Best In Show’ over 14 categories.
It’s not all cars though. There are plenty of market traders selling all manner of things from vintage furniture, bikes, rare toys, sought after car parts, and many other things of the same vein. We will even have a Strong Island Clothing Co stall present selling a few select tees and products for the event. You can also be treated to music, activities, shows and there is plenty to eat and drink on site. The whole site is family friendly and runs from 10am till 6pm.
We are always immensely thrilled to be able to hold such a unique event in our home town…
…each year the show selects two nominated charities to support and this year our charities are The Rowans Hospice and Ickle Pickles.
“A massive thank you to all the show visitors, sponsors and supporters who attended in 2015. Support like this means over the past 15 years we have raised over £74k for local good causes and charities an achievement which makes us feel incredibly humble and proud. This year the show will once again be supporting Aiden’s Walking Appeal and The Amanda Fund in memory of Amanda Drewry (BeachBuggin’ Volunteer & a key part of the show) who sadly died in March 2013 after a 3 year battle against breast cancer” Ally O’Connor, Event Organiser
The show is a ‘Not 4 Profit’ show run by volunteers. Three quarters of the shows profits goes to charity, with the remaining funds used as working capital to fund the show in the following year. All organisation and running of the show is done on a voluntary basis.
