Richmond Motor Club’s Scott Trial committee hosted their annual charity presentation evening at the Kings Head Hotel in Richmond.
The evening started with David Peacock, Scott Trial chairman, welcoming everybody and explaining the history of the Scott Trial and how Richmond Motor Club has raised over £205,000 for local charities since it took over the running of the trial in 1991.
