The show was born from a long standing desire of our Chairman John Dale to marry up his love of historic military vehicles, his farm and the desire to generate support for the Military Vehicle Trust and military charities. Our show is held in support of our chosen Charities which are many and change from year to year.

So this year we will be supporting

Hounds for Heroes.

So recently Neil Sutherland who is a CMVS team member breed his Labrador bitch Prudence and she had 9 smashing fox Red Labrador  puppies , he donated one of the boys to Hounds for heroes to grow up with them and be trained as an assistance dog for a veteran.

He was proudly given the title Captain Walter and below is a picture of Captain at 8 weeks of age.He will grow and be trained with foster parents until he’s approximately 15months old, he will then go to his new owner and hopefully make a big change to the veterans life.

So with your help we hope to support Captain through his training.

Captain Walter

Combat stress, we will be joined by a team member who will be talking about the charity and how they have helped serving military and also veterans.
