A fantastic array of cars and motorcycles are set to help raise funds for St Nicholas Hospice Care next month.

Classic and Sports Cars by the Lake, at Hall Farm, Fornham St Martin, is back for a fourth year, and it is shaping up to be the biggest and best event yet.

More than 250 vehicles, ranging from pre-war classics to motorcycles and present day sports cars, will be on display on Sunday, September 1.

In addition to the vehicles on show, visitors will be able to enjoy fly-fishing casting shows, food tent, craft stalls, climbing wall, children’s fun area and more. Last year’s event had 360 cars and motorcycles on show, was attended by more than 4,000 people and raised £21,000 for the hospice.

The day is organised by Andrew and Gina Long, of Hall Farm, along with the hospice’s voluntary special events committee.
