The South Australian CFS, All British Day’s chosen charity 2022 -2023


 All British Day is more than celebrating British vehicles. We are also a community focused organisation. This year we will be donating any profits from the event to a very worthwhile cause, and one that is very dear to the hearts of hills residents in particular. These volunteers do an amazing job, and in the recent horrific bushfire season proved themselves to be heros, saving lives, property and livestock against incredible odds. ABD salutes the invaluable CFS.
