JEC Grampian Region - Annual Gathering




 In a word ‘brilliant’.  That was the consensus of the Committee on our annual charity day at Drum Castle on 31st July which saw a total of 70 cars, Jaguars and Rolls Royces, either on the lawn or in the courtyard of the Castle, giving not only the dyed-in-the-wool petrol (or diesel) heads lots to inspect, discuss, envy and /or put on their wish list, but also for non-car enthusiasts generally to enjoy the spectacle.  Congratulations to all who took some silverware home with them – the full 2016 trophy winners’ list can be viewed on our website –

     This year’s chosen charity was Aberdeen Mountain Rescue Team who received a cheque for £4,500, this sum being raised through sponsorship and proceeds from the various stalls on the day.  The donation will be used to purchase replacement equipment and protective clothing essential for the hazardous life-saving work that this team - all volunteers - undertake year round.

     Our grateful thanks go to our very generous sponsors, the list is on our website; to Peter Vardy Jaguar Aberdeen for donating raffle prizes and to all who volunteered their time, baking produce, bottles etc. to our event to ensure it was a success.


     To the Scottish Section of the Rolls Royce Enthusiasts Club, Jaguar Drivers Club (Scotland) and Fife and Tayside Jaguar Enthusiasts Club who joined us on the lawn, the GR JEC thoroughly enjoyed the day and we hope you did too.
