Organisers of a popular car show in aid of a vital Bury St Edmunds charity are hoping to pull in the crowds with a ‘bigger and better’ event.

They hope the sixth annual Classic and Sports Cars by the Lake at Hall Farm, in Fornham St Martin on Sunday, September 6 will beat last year’s record of more than 630 vehicles and motorcycles.

The event, hosted by Andrew and Gina Long, has so far raised more than £72,500 for St Nicholas Hospice Care.

Austin Cornish, event organiser, said: “We are delighted hundreds of car and motorcycle exhibitors have already booked their places. So if you would like to be involved please do get it touch, as it will have to be first-come, first-served. As ever, we would like to thank our fantastic team of volunteers who have been involved since day one and our many sponsors, whose generous support helps us to hold this tremendous fundraising event.”

Greene and Greene solicitors are the main sponsors for the second year running.

Rachel Card, hospice corporate fund-raiser, added: ““We are delighted that Classic and Sports Cars by the Lake is back again this year.

“Since it started in 2010 it has become a popular event with families and car enthusiasts and the funds it has raised have helped to make living dying better for many people facing long-term or life-threatening illnesses.”
