Area 4 Garden Party at the home of Paul & Jan Gerring

Area Rep | Published on 8/5/2017

Jan & Paul Gerring kindly invited members of AMOC to attend a 'tea & cakes in the garden' party in aid of the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund, a favourite charity of Jan's.

Their garden was graced by a dozen Astons (from DB4 to GT8) and a variety of other classic and historic cars.

It was good to welcome members from Areas 10, 13 and 18.

Even the Stig manages to grab some cake!

Thank you Jan for baking a great quantity of great cakes; Paul for a great quantity of great cars and members far and wide for a great afternoon of chat and summer pleasantries!

The event raised £270 for the RAF Benevolent Fund (plus Gift Aid) so a huge thank you to everyone who made this event such a success. See here the letter of acknowledgement from the charity
