Scores of keen Jaguar enthusiasts are expected to descend on Drum Castle this Sunday for one of the region’s biggest car shows.

Now in its sixteenth year, the Annual Gathering and Car Show, hosted by the Grampian Region of Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club (JEC), will showcase iconic Jaguars and Daimlers dating back as far as the 1950s, including renowned classics and modern favourites.

Peter Vardy Jaguar, the main Dealer in Aberdeen, will also have a selection of the latest model Jaguar cars on display.

The Annual Gathering is the highlight of the club’s calendar which not only brings all the enthusiasts together, but also raises money for a particular charity chosen for the year.

This year will see all the proceeds from the club’s annual fund raising efforts go to South West Aberdeenshire Citizens Advice Bureau (SWACAB).

SWACAB is a volunteer led independent charity providing free advice to all members of the public.

At a meeting with the club committee in March, Eveline Crossan, Bureau Manager, expressed her sincere thanks to the club for choosing the charity to benefit from the proceeds of this year’s Annual Gathering.

All the money raised at the event will be donated to the charity, together with money pledged by a number of local sponsoring companies.

Jim Mann, Grampian Region Chairman for JEC commented; “The popularity of the Club’s annual event has increased every year.

“Over the 15 year history of the Annual Gathering we’ve welcomed thousands of passionate Jaguar and Daimler car owners and interested spectators who enjoy seeing the best of Grampian’s cars all together on show.

“We are really grateful to all our sponsors for the support they’ve shown both the club and our chosen charity - in 2014, we raised over £8,250 for ALEC.
