Cars by the Lake show in Fornham St Martin raises record-breaking £36,000
An annual car show has raised more than £36,000 for St Nicholas Hospice Care - a record-breaking sum for the event.
The sixth ‘Classic and Sports Cars by the Lake’ at Hall Farm, in Fornham St Martin, attracted 4,000 people who marvelled at 680 vehicles. They also enjoyed food, crafts and family attractions.
The total raised has exceeded expectations and Max Milburn, show president, said it was ‘by far the most successful yet’.
He said: “I would like to thank all involved, especially the organising committee and judges headed up by Austin Cornish, Paul Mercer and Karen Ridgeon, plus Greene and Greene and our many other sponsors.
“But none of this would be possible without the tireless support of our generous hosts Andrew and Gina Long.
“As always the real stars were the 680 loyal exhibitors with their beautifully presented vehicles and motor cycles. It was truly a record year. We must now start planning for next year.”
