Charity gearing up for 2024 Motor Show at Lulworth Castle

THE Dorset Blind Association Motor Show – a staple in the diaries of petrolheads across the south west – is returning this spring.

The free event, at the Lulworth Castle Estate, will take place on May 12, featuring hundreds of vehicles on show as well as a host of entertainment.

Live music will come from The Land Girls, The Bournemouth Carnival Band, and The Rock Choir, with visitors able to enjoy free performances and circus workshops by Jamie Jigsaw, as well as a dedicated kid’s area with bouncy castles, rides, face painting and stalls.

Elsewhere, foodies will be able to taste food and drinks from a host of producers, as well as browse stalls selling local produce and gifts.

A raffle, featuring prizes donated by local firms, will also take place, with lunch at Rick Stein restaurant, a barbecue, salon treatments, and much more up for grabs.

James Weld, owner of the Lulworth Estate and president of Dorset Blind Association, donates the use of the grounds for the motor show, which remains the only one held at the Castle.

The Dorset Blind Association (DBA), who have been supporting visually-impaired people in the county for over 100 years, are hugely thankful to all their supporters and volunteers who make the event possible.

With a fundraising goal of over £20,000 this year, the event aims to raise awareness and vital funds, with more than 5,000 attendees expected.

Gary Neild, from Blue Sky Financial Planning, headline sponsor of the event, said: “Blue Sky Financial Planning are delighted to support the motor show once again at Lulworth Castle on May 12.

“The 2023 show drew huge crowds and was an enormous success, and we are looking forward to being part of this wonderful event again next May.

“We admire the DBA team for their energy and passion, and the great work they do. They help so many people live a fulfilling life and that resonates strongly with our ethos at Blue Sky where we are focused on ‘what we cause and how we make people feel’.

“Our relationship draws on many parallels, and we love working with a like-minded, enthusiastic team.”

David Rogers, director at Daizun Investments, a fellow sponsor, added: “We are delighted to be part of such a meaningful event, that not only celebrates our love for cars, but also supports a truly worthwhile cause.

“I have been a regular car exhibitor at the Dorset Blind Association Motor Show for several years, and we are thrilled to now be the official Supercar Sponsor.”

The Castle showground will be open to the public from 10.30am to 4pm on May 12. Admission is free, with donations appreciated.
