PENDLE and District Motor Club have raised £4,000 for two local charities after their hugely-successful motorsport evening held at the Old Stone Trough Inn, Kelbrookin February.
Club chairman Rod Brereton was delighted to present £2,000 each to representatives of the North West Air Ambulance and the East Lancashire Downs Syndrome Support Group.
NWAA volunteer Annette Coates and ELDSSG manager Phil Shatliff were on hand to receive the money at the club’s meeting, also held at the Stone Trough.
“Our aim was to raise £4,000 from the night and to achieve that was just brilliant,” said Rod.
“There are so many people to thank, the forum guests, the generosity of the raffle and auction donors and bidders, and everyone who turned up on the night. I’d also like to thank Thomas Preston of the Hippo Motor Group, who helped us reach our target with a donation of £250.
“After listening to the work that is undertaken by these two charities, the club feel very honoured to be have been able to help them through our chosen sport.”
The money presented to the ELDSSG will go towards funding their Early Years Education Support Scheme, which gives specialist teaching for children entering mainstream schools for the first time.
“We’d like to thank Pendle DMC for their wonderful gesture, which will support 10 children in the scheme,” said Mr Shatliff, who was joined on the night by his son Lucas,12, and other members of the Group.
The £2,000 presented to the NWAA will go towards supporting the three air ambulances and four rapid response vehicles based at Blackpool Airport and Barton Aerodrome, and requires an annual budget of £9.5 million to keep airborne.

ND Civils Lee Holland Stages Cancellation Statement
In light of the current climate regarding Welsh Government Covid restrictions, and uncertainty surrounding the easing of these regulations, both Pendle District Motor Club and Garstang & Preston Motor Club have made the very difficult decision to cancel the ND Civils Lee Holland Stages.
The event had been due to take place at Anglesey Trac Mon on the 29th and 30th January.
We are all understandably disappointed at having to make this decision with just over two weeks until the event, but given the uncertainty over the Welsh government’s Covid rules and regulations, we are left with no other option.
We wish to thank everyone who committed to the event, especially the many people who have given up hundreds of hours already in organising.
As a result of this decision, competitors will receive refunds as per the Event Regulations.
We thank you for understanding.
Regulations now available. See Lee Holland Page

21st July 21
Scammonden Hillclimb 14th August 21
After due consideration of comments by last weeks competitors, and having previously spent time trying to repair the road surface at Scammonden, we have had to take the decision to cancel the August Hillclimb.
The clubs that normally run at Scammonden will be looking at the possibility of resurfacing areas of the track for future use, but as you all probably realise that would be an very expensive commitment.
We are very sorry for the late decision on this but the last event only took place last weekend and further problems were noted.
Once again, unfortunately due to not having permission from the MOD to use Weeton Barracks, we have had to cancel the Heroes Stages which was due to run on the 8th August 21.
We are looking for a possible future date nearer the end of the year otherwise it will be next year.
Sorry for this.
“Hi all. (Event Officials, Marshals, control timekeepers, radio control and radio crews, recovery, rescue, setup crews and anyone else (sorry) I may not have mentioned individually.
I hope you all arrived home safely.
Can I thank you all for your support and excellent work throughout the running of the Lee Holland Stages 21.
After very fraught and tense build ups and let downs, mainly due to Covid restrictions, we finally got the event to run.
With a Trackday occuring on the Friday and not being able to start stage setups till after 1700hrs the setup crews worked exceptionally well on the Friday evening and then early Saturday to get everything ready for the event to start on time.
The actual event ran very smoothly, with no major incidents or holdups, thanks to all your efficient work.
I can only thank you all once again for you efficiency and hard work and hope we can count on your continued support on future events.
Alan Shaw on behalf of the organising clubs.
For your information I will provide a link below to the event results.”

Lee Holland Stages 2020 Award.

It is with sadness that the Heroes Stages Rally run by Pendle District MC, along with Garstang and Preston MC, have had to announce that the Heroes Stages Rally, which was due to take place on the 1st November has had to be cancelled for this year.
The MOD, due to Covid problems within the Preston area, have with regret withdrawn permission to use the camp. We have also been pondering of late whether it would be unwise, even though all the latest Covid 19 regulations have been put in place, to put on this event when local families are being restricted in their ability to see family and friends.
To our competitors, thank you for your forbearance and continued support. We hope we will see you in the near future and assure you we tried our best to get this event on.
To our sponsors Neil & Dawn Roskell from ND Civils, thank you for your support.
To all our marshals, radio, timing, results and safety personnel – we again thank you for your continued support. Also to MSUK for their efforts and support of this event.
We know how many of you were willing to give up your time to support us and be available and prepared to stand out in whatever conditions the November date threw at us.
Unfortunately despite all our efforts it was not to be. We are sorry to disappoint everyone and we hope to see you all again next year at the Lee Holland Stages Anglesey in March and the Heroes stages in August.
Entries will be refunded as soon as possible.
Look after yourselves and more importantly stay safe in these turbulent times.
