This is the first time we've exhibited at this event and we were excited to get involved with this incredible community event. Pendle Powerfest is a one day event that this year was held at Nelson and Colne College on Sunday the 28th of May.
They opened the gates to a whole range of vehicles with no exclusions with a special focus this year on off road vehicles and motorsport. All proceeds from the event are going to buy toys and art supplies for local children's wards.
We managed to dazzle, despite the weather not being quite what we were hoping for, with our stunning GT86, C-HR and the all new Yaris. We enjoyed talking people through the various features of each car and spreading a little Toyota love. It was great to see so many families enjoying the day and parents passing on the motorsport bug.
Along with the obvious draw of an extensive range of vehicles on show there was an autograph session with racing legend Mike Newton and a charity raffle. The event also had live music throughout the day and family friendly activities like face painting and even zorbing.
The charity are in the early stages of working out how much they raised on the day but they are expecting to smash last year’s total as they had a record number of attendees this year.
We loved being involved in this community event and hope to be able to do more together in the future.
