Mods on the march
MODS and their scooters rode into Tidworth at the weekend to enjoy a musical treat while also raising money for a good cause.
March of the Mods was a celebration of the Mod movement of the 1960s as well as a fundraising event for the Teenage Cancer Trust, and is expected to have raised about £3,000.
Organiser Paul Ungi said: “It went really well and we have had nothing but positive feedback. It was for an excellent cause and also a great way of bringing people together.
The event, held at the Royal British Legion, was organised by the Kiwi Throttlers Scooter Club, which has previously put on events in aid of organisations such as Naomi House children’s hospice and forces charities.
March of the Mods events are being held across the country during this month, with 17 towns and cities helping to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust, and Barclays Bank pledging to double the amount raised.
The Tidworth event, on Saturday, featured local groups as well as those from further afield, along with DJs, and an auction of memorabilia.
