Renault FT and TSF plus Weitz transporter at Weald Foundation Open Day, September 16

News from the Weald Foundation:


World War I Fundraising Interactive Event

Following the tremendous success of Jagdpanther Day 2023, we at the Weald Foundation cordially invite you to our inaugural Fundraising Interactive Event. These smaller, intimate events will take place at our premises and concentrate on individual vehicles from our collection.

Our goal is to provide enjoyable education for our members and the public about these historic vehicles, the intricate restoration process, and the unique challenges the Weald Foundation tackles as a restoration charity. With positive feedback and sustained interest from our members, we plan to make these Interactive Events a recurring fixture.

World War I Fundraising Interactive Event

Kick-starting the series on 16 September 2023, we will shine a historical spotlight on the most significant vehicles from our collection: the Renault FT, Renault TSF and Weitz Tank Transporter. The day commences at 10:00 and concludes at 13:00. Activities will include an exclusive screening of our HLF-funded mini-documentary on the Renault FT, an insightful lecture by Weald Foundation's Director Mike Gibb and Trustee Hilary Louis Doyle, followed by a live demonstration on our ground of these fascinating World War I vehicles.

Meet & Greet with Hilary Louis Doyle

Esteemed trustee and renowned Panzertracts author, Hilary Louis Doyle, will be on-site for a special book signing session. This is a rare opportunity to interact with him and bring your copies to be signed.

The Crucial Role of Fundraising

Our aspirations for these events serve a dual purpose: to generate much-needed funds for our ongoing activities and to secure the future and expansion of our charity. As our charity continues to grow, fundraising becomes increasingly crucial to support our restorations, lectures, and events. We pride ourselves on setting the global standard in military vehicle restoration. We refuse to cut corners in our restoration efforts and make it a point to use original parts whenever possible, while meticulously researching each vehicle's provenance.

However, it is important to note that we receive no government aid. We rely solely on our dedicated members to fund our operations. To ensure we can continue our work, we are always welcoming new members to our program.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to all members for their invaluable contributions and unwavering support. In the same vein, we also request their help in promoting our work and encouraging more enthusiasts to join our cause.
