Charging a nominal fee of just RM5 per passenger, all collections are channelled to the school, for children aged 6 to 17, who are intellectually challenged.

A club member brought out his prized collection of Coca-Cola memorabilia. It was one of those rare occasions. The items were not for sale, unfortunately!

The charity drive also helped to create awareness for the school’s kindergarten, Taska Semangat Maju, established in 2014 to provide Early Intervention Programme (EIP) as well as day care service for intellectually challenged children from six months to four years old.

The large gathering of classic cars certainly drew curious onlookers to that section of Ipoh Old Town, where the Evolution wall mural is.
