Bundle O'Dubz

I'll state this up front, I'm afraid this report is going to be a bit biased. The reason is that Bundle O'Dubz was organised by my friends Kieron, Billy and Myself. 
Kieron and I have been holding a meet in Essex known as Essex VW Night on the first Thursday of each month for a couple of years now, then one day Billy suggested it might be an idea to host a summer BBQ and that he knew a nice little venue where we could get all the regulars together to chill in a field with some beer and food and have a bit of fun.

 We decided that we would charge a small amount for entry and that any profits we made would go to the Helen Rollason Cancer Charity as this particular charity is close to my heart.
The venue chosen was Blake House Craft Centre near Braintree in Essex, who also supplied the BBQ and all the food and drink.

Trophies were sponsored for the Show n Shine by Spikes Vintage Restorations, Final Lap, and Mr Ron's Engine Shop Essex VW Night.

Traders that supported the show were Jezzi & Co, White Isle, Final lap, Spikes Vintage Restorations and Marcus Coy who provided the autojumble.

Tiny Music Tent provided a sound system with the Old Skool tunes supplied by DJ.H on the decks.

All of a sudden we had ourselves not just a BBQ but a VW show!
 Best of all we raised over £300 for Helen Rollason.
Plans are already being made for the second Bundle O' Dubz so keep an eye open for it and put it in your 2015 show diary.
