Take a spin in a classic car - and raise money for Bosom Friends
10:57am Wednesday 14th August 2013 in News
Classic car fans who visit Barnoldswick’s Rolls-Royce Social Club on Saturday will not only be able to take a look at some of the dream models of old – but also take a ride in them.
A number of older and more modern day classics will be on display as part of a fundraising event that Great Escapes Classic Car Hire, of Harrogate, is staging for Bosom Friends cancer support group.
Among the cars on show will be the fabulous Jenson Interceptor along with its American counterpart, the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.
There will also be one of the fastest accelerating cars on the road – a Caterham R300 – as well as an MGB Roadster.
The cars will be available for passenger rides from 10am until 2pm and the organisers simply ask that a minimum donation of £5 is made for each 15-minute ride.
All the money generated will then go to Bosom Friends.
Mark Hyde, who is organising the event, said: “This is a great opportunity for classic car fans to examine some of these great vehicles at close hand and experience what it’s like to ride in them, as well as support a brilliant charity that does so much good in the local community and beyond at the same time.”
Anyone who wants to book a ride in their chosen car, or cars, can contact Mark beforehand on 07972 180570. Alternatively email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
