Since it was established three years ago, the Concours d’Elegance has helped raise over £2000 for Children’s Hospice South West through collections and fundraisers on the day.

Through its homely hospices Children’s Hospice South West provides a lifeline of care and support for families with children who are not expected to reach adulthood. All money raised at this year’s event will go towards keeping this vital service going.
