Lakes Charity Classic Vehicle Show 2014

Thanks to all our exhibitors and supporters, the show in June 2014 made just over
£5,000.  This will be shared mainly between the St John's Hospice, Lancaster
and the Macmillan Nurses with the remainder to the Lions Charities.

We all had such a lovely day. The cars were all shining in the sun and we saw smiling faces everywhere.  

Thanks to all the exhibitors of cars, bikes, tractors and trucks, you really do have such beautiful vehicles and it is so good of you all to bring them to Grasmere.  

We must say such a big, big thank you to Saint & Co for sponsoring the show, without their support we would not be able to raise so much money.

The show on June 23rd 2013 went ahead as planned.  Sadly the weather prevented us having the hot air balloon rides and the paragliders we had hoped for, but it didn't stop the main attractions of all the cars.  There were over 250 vehicles on the field giving all our visitors lots to look at and enjoy.
