The fifth annual Classic and Sports Cars by the Lake show near Bury St Edmunds has
raised an estimated £30,000 for charity.

Thousands of people flocked to Sunday’s event, which supports St Nicholas Hospice Care.

The day at Hall Farm, Fornham St Martin, showcased 600 cars and motorcycles, with more than 5,300 people passing through the gates.

The event is hosted by Andrew and Gina Long, of Hall Farm, and organised by a voluntary committee.

Mrs Long said: “It was an incredible day raising huge sums for the hospice, which is only possible because of the stars of the show: the cars and their owners, and the public – who came out in record numbers.

“It was by far the best show yet, and it’s getting better every year.

“Thank you to everyone who supported it and made it such a special day. We are also grateful to our generous sponsors, who help to make the event possible.”

Head organiser Austin Cornish said they estimated the event had raised more than £30,000, which they are “thrilled” with.
