Andrew and Naomi Wilcox have been running Suffolk Burgs, a friendly Volkswagen owners club which aims to get v-dubbers in Suffolk and surrounding areas together to have fun, make friends and gain valuable contacts in the VW scene, since 2005. Members meet throughout the year and Andrew and Rosie arrange club camps, including camping at VW shows throughout the year. www.suffolkbugrs.co.uk
Now they have turned their attention to helping a local charity and have organised a Christmas Lights Cruise to raise money for 4YP (Suffolk Young People’s Health Project), an Ipswich-based charity which provides and co-ordinates services that improve the social, emotional and physical health and wellbeing of young people in Suffolk aged 12-25. 4YP offers an amazing service for young people from one-to-one support, counselling, groups and activities, shower and food supplies. They also go into schools to support young people in need.
The Christmas Lights Cruise will take place on Friday 11 December (or Saturday 2 January if lockdown is extended), meeting from 7pm at Anglia Retail Park, Bury Road, Ipswich IP1 5QP to depart at 7.15pm. The plan is to cruise through Ipswich and several other villages, ending on Felixstowe Sea Front.
Participants (and anyone keen to support 4YP) are asked to donate £10 to take part and can donate via: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/suffolkbugrs
So put the date in your diary now and remember to keep a lookout for what’s sure to be a wonderful sight.
