Rally around good cause heap

A VINTAGE and classic vehicle run from Ripley to the Bakewell Showground is set to raise funds for Prostate Cancer Research UK.

Organiser Tony Johnson, from the Robin Hood Branch of the Austin Ten Club, said: “We are hoping to attract a wide range of older vehicles to join in the run, which will not only be a great day out for the participants but also attract members of the public to Bakewell Showground.”

Vehicles registered in 1986 or before are eligible and seats on a vintage coach can be booked for £10 per person.

Apart from the vintage and classic vehicles, there will be an array of stalls at Bakewell and Charles Hanson Auctioneers, of Derby, will be valuing collectable items at £1 a time.

The rally is set for Sunday morning, June 19. For information and entry forms call 01773 833991.
