Well was that a brilliant show or what ? , even we have to admit that the main arena was awesome and the air show was an absolute legend, and as for the George sale, that will be remembered for a long time and we must thank all the dedicated George staff that gave their time for nothing to make the George tent the very best it’s ever been.
Some of you might be aware that Asda said that they might have a problem with “on your marks“ in the future. However, despite recent changes in ethics policy, after talks with the Ethics Team we have agreed that we can continue with On Your Marks.
Both Chris and myself have been battling away since last August, and the agreement with the Ethics Team is just what we needed. We would like to thank all at Asda Ethics Team for helping us get this through, and they have now given us the green light to carry on with this extraordinary day that so many thousands of people and Asda colleague’s now love and enjoy. Some say it’s better than the “Goodwood festival of speed“ because you can get “up close and personal“ to all the cars, trucks, and aircraft.
You all might have noticed that we didn’t have as many sponsors at the 2014 show, so we started the show £7,500 down on other years and both of us thought that we just wouldn’t break the record we had set the year before at £53,850
Well we must stop underestimating you all, because you have all smashed it again, We can now tell you all that this years “on your marks” total is £58,843,62.
We both would like to take this time to thank all the car clubs, truck manufacturers, sponsor’s, Asda House, Asda staff, Asda sub-contractors, Bruntingthorpe, and A1+ cones for all their help in making this extraordinary amount of money for the male cancer charity Orchid.
This will bring the grand total that “on your marks has raised to £428,693,62.
Chris and myself will be doing it all again for our fifteenth year on Saturday 6th August 2016.
