HMS Mobility has helped to raise over £8,000 for blood bikes and a hospice in Yeovil after the Retro Fundraising day it helped to organise attracted thousands of visitors.

The Somerset dealer was the host, organiser and prime sponsor for the Retro Fundraising event, which saw around 400 vintage and classic vehicles arrive from across the UK.

All the profits from the day were donated with £650 from the tea tent raised for St Margaret’s Hospice and £7,800 for Yeovil Freewheelers Blood Bikes.

Retro Fundraising’s first event was held in July 2013 by Garry & Kirstie Hellings.

A total of £41,000 has now been raised by the event since it began running.

Garry Hellings, who runs HMS Mobility, said earlier this year that 2019 was set to be its “best event yet”.

He said: “Working in the mobility industry we often see and hear of hardship for young disabled children.

“My eldest daughter, Kirstie Hellings, sales director at HMS Mobility, and I try and give something back from our business efforts by organising, hosting and being the main sponsor for our one day event ‘Retro Fundraising’.

“All money raised goes to a local charity to help disabled children.”
