MEMBERS of the South West Scoobies Club for Subaru car owners is organising a North Devon Scooby Run to raise money for Devon Air Ambulance Trust.The Run starts at 9am on Saturday, August 9, 2008 from the Barnstaple Leisure Centre, visiting Ilfracombe, Combe Martin, heading to South Molton, then on to Torrington, before heading to Bideford, with the final stop being at the Milky Way. Once done, they will be making for the Crealock Arms at Littleham for food and entertainment. Paul Davis-Chaffey, spokesman and Club Charity Fundraiser said: "We decided to support the charity because as enthusiasts of powerful cars, we fully appreciate this is an essential service in our county, especially due to its rural nature. We wanted to support a charity which is there for anyone who should need it, and the Air Ambulance fitted perfectly. He added :"We would like to Thank Alan Jeffery of EngineTuner.co.uk. The Milky Way, the car clubs across the South West who are participating in the event. Mr Sticker of Plymouth, Mel and Mark of Torpedo Mad, Sean of devoncarshows.co.uk. Any parties interested in becoming involved please email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org Caroline Creer, Fundraising Director for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust said: "We would like to thank the organising committee for all their hard work in putting together this event and hope everyone has a fantastic time. She added: "The service is totally independent of Government funding so community events such as this are absolutely vital in order to ensure the Devon's two Air Ambulances will continue to be there for everyone who lives, works or holidays in Devon. With a new generation aircraft arriving this Autumn, bought by the charity, it's even more important to secure the funding we need to maintain the service, and indeed increases, in order to cover rising costs such as fuel.
