This is Year 1

Posted on Friday 30th

To anyone that catches this post, I would like to say thank you for being a part of this journey. I have been a classic car enthusiast since I was 18 and a rider since I was 25. Definitely threw myself in the deep end with DGR a year after getting my license! It has taken 10 years to get to this stage and although it has taken me 5 years longer than I thought it would, I am very proud to launch The Distinguished Gentleman's Drive. 

The goal this year is to build a strong foundation for growth in an organic and very authentic way. It won't be a huge marketing campaign and social media spend, it will be a grassroots, word-of-mouth campaign designed to capture those passionate about classic cars and men's health. This will give our volunteer hosts the opportunity to grow their friendship circles and DGD support for 2022. 

It has been an extremely tough 18 months for the majority of the world and our focus on giving men and women the opportunity to connect and smile is equally important to our fundraising campaign! Mental health has deteriorated for a lot of us. If you can donate, please do, if you can't, that is absolutely fine. Be there for the men and women in your lives, remind those over 45 to get checked for prostate cancer (well, if they are male.. don't make this awkward), and if you have a pre-1980s classic car, join us as we support the amazing work of Movember.
