Invicta Land Rover Club has been raising money for the Air Ambulance for many years now. We do this in a whole variety of ways; from charity raffles at club meetings to charity fundraising pots and enlisting the help of 'Kermit the Frog' to sell things at car shows.
The Tim Letley Memorial Cup
After the very sad loss of our son Tim in March 2016, long time club member Charlie Thorn donated a wonderful cup in his memory and suggested that the family should decide how it should be awarded.
Everybody who knew Tim would know that he would do anything for anybody at any time, now we have all heard this said of people but with Tim it was so true.
We as his family did not realise how many people he had helped over the years because he was such a quiet man who would just get on with helping folk and not say a word (or take payment except for a cuppa) and we did not find out how true this was until people started telling us after he had gone, it did not matter if you had only just met him or been a mate for a long time.
So we decided that to honour his life the cup should go to the person who has helped others in the same vain as Tim.
Members can make their nominations throughout the year by giving the name of the club member and a brief reason why, put in on a slip and place in into the box, then in May the box will be opened and Tim’s family will go through them and decide the most deserving to award the cup to and they will hold the cup for the next year.
This Year's Winner: Ted Hill - 2018/2019
Here is what he had to say:
"Well what a surprise that was! Thank you all that voted for me. It's nice to feel appreciated but like the other commitee members, we do it because we love our club and not for reward. Thanks again. The trophy is sitting in pride of place in my conservator. I promise to dust it regularly".
