Dacorum Car Tour

The Spirit of Dacorum Car Tour (DCT) returned to Champneys on the early May Bank Holiday, as enthusiasts came together to raise funds for local Dacorum communities.

Now in its sixth year, the annual classic car showcase rolled through the gates at Champneys Tring and parked up at our international college, before setting off and exploring the countryside and highways and byways of the borough.

Starting at our grounds in Wiggington, the tour also took in Shendish Manor Hotel in Apsley, Audley Park Hotel in Redbourn and The Old Chequers in Gaddesdon Row before finishing at Pendley Manor for a picnic and garden party.

Held in aid of Hemel Hempstead-based The Dacorum Community Trust - a charity dedicated to helping those most in need within the Dacorum area - the event saw families, individuals and organisations coming together to help make a difference.

Claire Furnell, Trustee of DCT said: “We’re now in our sixth year and this was the second that started off at Champneys. We are delighted to be working with Champneys to raise funds for The Dacorum Community Trust – which is now in its 40th year of helping the people of the borough.”

More than 100 eye-catching vintage vehicles toured the countryside, with money raised for The Dacorum Community Trust.

Rachel Halling, Principal of Champneys College added: “We love to support The Dacorum Trust and all of the good work that they do. It’s a pleasure to be involved with such a fun event.

“They have strived to make a difference for so long now, and like the Champneys College, they’re celebrating their 40th anniversary in 2016. It’s a landmark year for The Dacorum Community Trust and long may it continue.”
