Mid Essex MGOC Supported Charities
Each year the MID ESSEX OWNERS CLUB look to raise money for local charities via our social events that we run and previously from the Abridge Carfest Event, which we no longer host.
We have raised money for Great Ormond Street Hospital, St Francis & St Lukes Hospitals.
The Club have decided that our current fundraising will be the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance Service, who work effortlessly, ensuring that lives are saved and give fast and rapid response to accidents and events.
A Very British Afternoon Tea
Sunday 25th July we held our first fundraiser in aid of our supported charity, The Essex & Herts Air Ambulance. This was helped by the National Cream Tea Society who provided supported charities with jam and clotted cream for National Cream Tea Day.
The event was nicely supported with a variety of cakes, sandwiches, a raffle and a Tombola stall to help add funds to the kitty.
The weather wasn't the greatest but as most people were under gazebo's, it didn't dampen the afternoon.
We are pleased to announce that we managed to raise an impressive £600 for EHAAT which will help keep this worthy cause going. The only sad part to announce was the jigsaw puzzle managed to end up in many hands but ended back on the Tombola stall..... (some pictures of the event added below)
Our Facebook Fundraiser
15th March 2021 - We did it! We set a target of £150 on our Facebook page and our wonderful members agreed to donate their membership fees and we surpassed that figure to £241, we all agreed to bump that figure to £500 and we received a nice thank you message from Essex & Herts Air Ambulance's Fundraising administrator Charlotte Evans for the funds received stating, that it would help towards there cause. Thank you again everyone for your input and kindness.
25th February 2021 - As we approach our birthday on Facebook and with the pandemic stopping us from our usual social events programme, it was decided to open a fundraiser page for our chosen charity, Essex & Herts Air Ambulance.
All donations received, 100% of the funds go towards this great charity and as our members have agreed, that they are willing to help reach the fundraiser target.

26th October 2019 - We had our Bingo night and it was a great night to remember. Members and guests all enjoyed themselves as well as the food that was included with the price of the ticket. The tombola did very well and we are pleased to announce that we raised £250, which will be sent to Essex Air Ambulance.
The event was so popular, that another is planned for early 2020, so look out for updates.
Our 80's quiz night was a great success and helped us raise £450 which goes to GOSH. Thank you for all that attended that night and helped us.
17th July 2018 - Abridge Motorfest - Our own show and it was a very successful one and helped us raise money for GOSH. We had 178 cars attend the show and we raised £390 which will go to this great cause.
28th October 2017 - We held our annual Quiz night with a sausage/fish & chip dinner to help raise money for GOSH.
The night was very eventful, considering it was Halloween, as we had a power cut to add to the event but, it didn't dampen our spirits and we helped raise £400 on the night with some members dressing up in costume (well, we think they did?)
Everyone had a great night and all teams did well even though there were some strange answers to the questions!!
On the 25th July 2017, some of our lady members went to Great Ormond Street Hospital to present the cheque from the monies raised at the Abridge Motorfest early April. They spent several hours there and had a great time with the staff, see the photos taken below.
This year (2017) we raised funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital at the Abridge Motorfest from our tombola stall.
The response from the public was immense and helped raise much needed funds for this great charity which is very close to our members hearts.
