Top of the range cars, scooters and motorbikes filled the Market Place on Sunday, for the Rotary Club of Melton Mowbray’s Vintage and Classic Vehicle Fun Day.
Between £800-£900 was raised for Cancer Research UK and Home-Start, Rotary supported charities, from donations.
Other attractions on the day included a tombola, cake stall, food outlets and a clown who did balloons for children.
Rotarian Ian Neale said: “It was a good day and we had 55 classic cars. There was a lovely atmosphere in the Market Place.
“We took plenty of money in our collection buckets and sold lots of raffle tickets.
“This was the first time we held the event in the Market Place as opposed to Play Close. Rotarians and I felt it was much better, more compact and more visible to people.”
The result of the raffle was as follows: 1st: Chris Richardson, winner of 24 hours at Launde Abbey dinner bed and breakfast; 2nd: Bob McCord, tea for two at Gates Garden Centre; 3rd: Geoff Goodwin, Dickinson & Morris hamper; 4th: Mr Sharman, meat voucher from Derek Jones.
