Support your favourite causes for FREE at The Historic Vehicle Gathering at Powderham Castle
We are offering again a new way for you to vote for your preferred charities in 2017.
TheGivingMachine (Charity Reg No 1159320) is a UK charity which helps support other charities and schools. Around 8,000 are registered so far (as it’s free to do so).This year, the Crash Box and Classic Car Club are working with TheGivingMachine again. This will mean visitors and exhibitors will have the opportunity to vote for the charities represented at the show as well as a list of others based in the area.
The votes cast at our show will be used to determine how some of the Club’s donations will be made.
All paying visitors will receive a ticket at the either of the two public entry gates. In order to vote, you simply need to deposit this ticket at the stand of whichever charity you choose at the show. Alternatively it can be deposited at the Show Control Tent.
For exhibitors there is a detachable voucher included with your exhibit pass. Simply detach along the perforation and deposit the slip as described above.
After the show, these votes will be counted and a donation from the Club will be divided accordingly.
Want to support your chosen charity even more? No problem! You can vote once more by texting the code on your wristband and then following the instructions sent back by TheGivingMachine to your mobile phone. This is a free service and you only pay your usual text cost – which is generally included in the price of your phone contract or airtime agreement. You can also use this method to vote for one of a choice of local charities (registered with TheGivingMachine).
The donation amount is paid by the Club – but more votes mean a charity gets a bigger donation. So don’t waste your votes – make them count and help make a real difference to one of the charities at the show and those in the local area.
