Four car enthusiasts are hoping to boost a charity’s funds on Sunday, August 20, at the Melford Crank-Up at Stafford Park in Liston, Long Melford.
The crank-up is a vintage vehicle and steam engine show, which will start at 10am.
Attending the event are friends Gavin Argent, Anne Argent, Mick Elsey and Gordon Macpherson, who are hoping to raise money for charity.
The group are on a mission to raise funds for St Nicholas Hospice with their ‘can you guess our mileage’ competition.
The four who own Trabant cars took their vehicles home to East Germany, making plenty of stops on the way – including visiting the Canadian War Memorial Cemetery at Groesbeek, Zwickau Horch Museum, the Treffen at Denkendorf, and many more.
Their adventure lasted 12 days and now they are back they would like to do their bit for charity.
It costs £2 to enter the competition and the money raised goes to the St Nicholas Hospice.
