IOW Car Club Charity Day

The Isle of Wight Car Club held a Charity Day in aid of Sophie today at the County Show Ground, with an auto test and show and shine competition raising an amazing £1,900 (£987 in donations on the gate). There was a huge turnout with some great cars on show. It was obvious that hundreds of hours had gone into getting some of the cars into the amazing condition they were in and Sophie got to judge a special competition ‘Sophie Rolf Concours D’Elegance IOW Car Club 2012 Trophy’. It was a very close run thing but Sophie eventually picked an orange mini to be the worthy winner. Sophie’s brother jack also got taken around the circuit which he thoroughly enjoyed.

Sophie Rolf is a happy go lucky, always smiling, little bundle of joy (most of the time!). In June 2012, 2 months before her 5th birthday, she was diagnosed with an agressive brain tumour. It is early days, and Sophie’s family are still discussing the prognosis with Doctors and seeking further opinions on treatment options.

We have set up KissyPuppy kindly supported by Brainstrust, to create a mechanism for friends and family to fund raise for Sophie. The money raised will be used to support Sophie’s journey through this. It may be used to fund travelling to and from appointments on the mainland, any equipment needed, it may be used for treatment not funded through the NHS or just to ‘Keep Sophie Happy’ by paying for things she likes to do.

We chose the name KissyPuppy as this a word Sophie uses for a very special sort of cuddle and kiss reserved only for her big brother Jack.
